The Black Cats will take on The Imps in the second leg of the League One play-off semi-final on Saturday afternoon at the Stadium of Light.

The Black Cats now trail 2-0 heading into the second leg after losing Lincoln City on Wednesday night.

The Black Cats shipped two woeful goals in a second half where they had actually forged the better of the chances, let down by wasteful finishing and a superb display from emergency loan goalkeeper Josef Bursik.
