There is nothing quite like the Championship play-offs and the 2022/23 edition get underway at the Stadium of Light on Saturday afternoon as Sunderland host Luton Town.


Third-place Luton booked their spot weeks ago while the Black Cats snatched sixth place on the dramatic final day – with their win against Preston enough as Millwall were beaten by Blackburn.

The winner of the two-legged tie, which will conclude at Kenilworth Road on Tuesday evening, will face either Coventry or Middlesbrough at Wembley at the end of the month for a place in the Premier League.

Tony Mowbray has backed match-winners like Jack Clarke, Amad Diallo, and Patrick Roberts to be the difference but in truth, the tie could be decided by how effectively Sunderland's injury-hit defence can deal with the Hatters' physical forward line.

The pair boast two of the best away records in the Championship this season and have drawn 1-1 the last four times they've played, which highlights just how hard Saturday's first leg is to call. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Sunderland v Luton on TV and online.
