SUNDERLAND will face a potential relegation showdown with West Brom in the last week of the season.

The Baggies’ visit to the Stadium of Light was due to take place on March 1, but was postponed due to Sunderland’s commitments in the Capital One Cup final.

It will now take place on Wednesday, May 7 (kick-off 7.45pm) prior to the last weekend of the Premier League campaign.

Sunderland’s trip to Manchester City, which fell victim to the weather last month, has also been re-scheduled and will now take place on Wednesday, April 16 (kick-off 7.45pm).
