Caroline Ayre wrote: “AFC Wimbledon has a capacity of less than 5,000.

“I live three minutes from Bristol Rovers ground and my son has grown up a Sunderland supporter.

“We thought playing Bristol City and Cardiff in the Championship was bad enough, but we will be at Rovers next season. Sunderland till we die!”

Alyson Drummond wrote: “I was looking up the capacity of Accrington Stanley, it’s 5,057.

“Can’t believe we have sunk this low...it’s devastating.”
