The Black Cats will be backed by a 44,000-strong sea of red and white at Wembley as they bid to end their four-year stint in League One – a division they had only spent one season in prior to 2018.

Boss Alex Neil has his side rocking in the form table with a 15-game undefeated streak under their belt, but they face a stern test this Saturday.

Wycombe are notoriously shrewd operators. The Chairboys rarely dominate any stats tables, particularly attacking ones, but they simply find a way through teams of all abilities.

Gareth Ainsworth has inspired his men to the Championship before and will be determined to do so again. He will take great heart from his side's 2020 play-off final victory over Oxford.

RadioTimes.com has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Sunderland v Wycombe on TV and online.

Our prediction: Sunderland v Wycombe

On paper, Sunderland could stake a claim for boasting the best squad in the division.

Their form dropped off radically as the top brass took almost two weeks to replace Lee Johnson with Neil earlier in the year, but since the former Preston boss arrived on Wearside, he has steadily overseen a building train of momentum

However, famously, football isn't played on paper. Wycombe are as organised a unit as you're likely to find in the Football League and will hold firm against any onslaught that comes their way.

Neil's Sunderland have the quality and the match-winners to get the job done, but they simply must win the physical battles early on, keep their composure in the first half and slowly ramp up the pressure until their valiant hosts show cracks.

Our prediction: Sunderland 1-0 Wycombe (11/2 at bet365)
