Sunderland will travel to the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium to face QPR in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup, which has proven divisive among the Black Cats faithful.
Lee Johnson’s side beat League One rivals Wigan Athletic 2-0 at the DW Stadium on Tuesday night to confirm their place in the draw for the fourth round with goals from Nathan Broadhead and Luke O’Nien proving the difference.
Sunderland are one of just four EFL clubs left in the competition and the only side from outside the Championship or Premier League.

The draw was done after last night’s games and it was confirmed that the North East club will travel to the nation’s capital to take on QPR in the week commencing the 25th of October.
We will face QPR at Loftus Road in the last 16 of the Carabao Cup.

The Black Cats have not found the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium the happiest of hunting grounds in recent years, losing three of their last four games there going back to 2013.
Are these 22 Sunderland stats real or fake?
Drawing the R’s has proven divisive among supporters of the League One outfit, with some feeling it offers them a good chance to get through and others disappointed not to be facing a bigger club.
Plenty of supporters have taken to Twitter to voice their thoughts…
