Sunderland are preparing for the first leg of their League One play-off semi-final against Lincoln City – and supporters have been sending in their messages ahead of the match.

We asked Black Cats fans on our social media platforms, ‘What would your message be to the SAFC squad ahead of the play-off semi-finals?’

Here are some of the responses:

@MichaelBowers15: Want it more than the others. You’ve got the quality to win the play-offs but cut out silly errors. #SAFC fell short two years ago - hopefully go one better this time. Give everything and if you get us promoted in a couple of weeks then you’ll be remembered fondly among many fans.

@freakrency: When you think you can't achieve the impossible. It is possible. You have an army behind you. A red and white army.

@guthers102: You can't win it tonight, but you can certainly lose it.

@Tommyesafc: Go out there and leave it all on the pitch, give it your all lads and believe in yourselves as we all believe in you. Ha'way The Lads

@safctim: Don’t bottle it, play hard press and fight for your lives, the rest will look after itself. We should be the best team in League One on our day, let’s play to the max for 90 mins

@WinlowP: As long as you give us your best effort then at least we can’t complain whatever the results !!

@HeaderSafc: Get out of this league please, no silly mistakes talk to each other win tomorrow night please haway the lads

@jjohncurry401: Show the same attitude and determination as the under 23 team

@ColdwellAnn: Just believe and be strong. We’re all in this together and the euphoria of success will banish the bad times for the foreseeable in the safe, sensible and caring hands of Kyril. Ha’way all our Lads (and Lasses)

@steve2013: Want it more than the others. I feel like the teams that win the Play-offs more often than not are the team that shows the desire to win them the most

@wackojacko1971: Play together. Stick together. Leave it all on the pitch.
