THIS is one of the biggest games in recent years for Sunderland, a chance to play at Wembley in a cup final, writes Paul Welch.
We hold a slight advantage going into the game after the heroics a fortnight ago, but Man Utd will be desperate to win this as it’s their only real chance of silverware this season.
If we start like we did on Saturday, we’ll get murdered and United could end up running riot.
But hopefully the players will learn from mistakes made last weekend and every player will realise what’s at stake and will be right up this game.
It’s going to be backs to the wall for long periods of time but I’m sure we’ll get a couple of chances to threaten the Man Utd goal, so it’s vital we make the most of them.
The 9,000 fans will be deafening all game and I believe we’ll come away very happy indeed.
Prediction: Man Utd 0 Sunderland 1
