His assist for Ross Stewart ten minutes from time capped off an excellent display from the former Huddersfield man, who signed a two-year deal on Wearside last summer.
With Patrick Roberts and Elliot Embleton cutting in from the flanks and Stewart dropping deep, Wycombe simply couldn’t live with Sunderland’s forward players when the Black Cats attacked.

Pritchard was the pick of the bunch, though, making four key passes (according to Whoscored.com) which led to goalscoring chances, more than any other player on the pitch.
The 29-year-old was also effective when he drifted out to the right and was able to deliver in-swinging balls into the box.
Of Pritchard’s nine attempted crosses, five found a Sunderland team-mate, while they regularly caused panic in Wycombe’s penalty area.
As a player who has played in the Championship for most of his career, Pritchard’s experience is likely to be important next season following spells with Brentford, Norwich and Huddersfield in the second tier.
Even when Sunderland were struggling halfway through the campaign, the playmaker’s leadership qualities were apparent, and he was often the man stepping up in difficult moments.
After a stop-start first season at Sunderland due to injury and fitness setbacks, Pritchard certainly stepped up at Wembley. What a player!
