THIS fella is not feeling sheepish ahead of tomorrow’s big game.

 The sheep, which lives next to Penshaw Tea Rooms in the shadow of Penshaw Monument, will surely be hoping Fabio “Baa-rini” can secure the Capital One Cup for SAFC.

 Tony Green, who runs the business, said interest in the colourful animal has rocketed.

 “We put a photo on Facebook of it and it’s been viewed something like 6,000 times already,” said Tony.

 “We’re all big Sunderland fans and are really looking forward to tomorrow.”
