'Just let us win at Wembley' - Sunderland fans share their score predictions for Papa John's Trophy final
Black Cats fans have been giving their score predictions ahead of Sunderland AFC’s appearance at Wembley in the Papa John’s Trophy final.
Lee Johnson’s side face League Two Tranmere Rovers on Sunday, March 14 in the Papa John’s Trophy final, where they will attempt to stop a run of seven defeats in a row at Wembley.
Cup fever has gripped Wearside with fans raising more than £140,000 by buying commemorative tickets, Stirk’s Butchers creating a special sausage to mark the occasion and the Papa John’s pizza shop on Newcastle Road temporarily changing its name to ‘Papa Lee’s’ after SAFC manager Lee Johnson.
As we all gear up to watch the match and show our red and white pride at home, we asked Echo readers to send in their score predictions via our Facebook page.
Here’s what some of you said:
Stephen Moran: “I'd settle for us getting totally outplayed and winning 1-0 via an OG – just let us win at Wembley.”
Neil Burnhope: “I think 3-0 to the lads, big Charlie first goal. My six-year-old daughter thinks 2-0, Max Power (her favourite player) first goal.”
Roy Reay: “3-1, Charlie for a brace, nice wide pitch to get those crosses in, HA’WAY THE LADS."
Charmayne Tomlinson: “Be happy that they win but me and my partner reckon 3-1.”
Kris Qualie: “2-0, Wyke and McGeady with late goals.”
Ian Donaldson: “3-1, Wyke to score first.”
