TICKETS for Sunderland’s Capital One Cup semi-final second leg at Old Trafford may have sold out – but Black Cats fans can still get into the match spirit at the Stadium of Light.

More than 9,000 supporters will be in Manchester to cheer on Gus Poyet’s men, who are just a game away from Wembley.

The Stadium of Light’s sports bar, Quinn’s, will be screening the game on Wednesday night, with 400 fans expected to pack out the venue.

Sunderland go into the tie with a 2-1 lead from the first leg, thanks to a Ryan Giggs own-goal and a penalty from Italian Fabio Borini.

Nemanja Vidic scored for the Red Devils.

Entry to Quinn’s is £3 per person and includes a pint of beer on arrival. Doors to the bar will be open to supporters from 5pm.
