Sunderland take on Portsmouth for the fifth time this season as the League One promotion battlers scramble for a place at Wembley.


The Black Cats were defeated by Pompey in the Checkatrade Trophy final at the national stadium in March.

However, Sunderland hold a 1-0 lead going into the second leg of the play-off semi-finals following a thunderous volley from Chris Maguire at the Stadium of Light.

The tie is far from over but Portsmouth will need to dig deep in front of a sell-out crowd at Fratton Park.

Who will win? RadioTimes.com says…

Jack Ross’ Sunderland racked up a league-high 19 draws during the regular season and just need one more to book their place at Wembley.

Alim Ozturk will be available after his first-leg red card was rescinded on appeal, and the Black Cats will feel they have the edge going into the game.

However, as recent play-off and European clashes have proven, no lead is safe – do Portsmouth have what it takes to overturn the deficit?

Prediction: Portsmouth 1-1 Sunderland
