When Sunderland's game against Sheffield Wednesday will be played as new date is found for Hillsborough meeting

The game at Hillsborough was initially set to take place at the start of September but was postponed due to international call-ups for both sides.

It has since been confirmed the game in South Yorkshire will be played on Tuesday, 2 November (7.45pm kick-off).

The game will come just three days after Sunderland’s trip to Rotherham and before the first round of the FA Cup, which is yet to be drawn, in the same week.
