Sunderland and Lincoln City are gearing up for a huge clash at the Stadium Of Light as they prepare for the League One play-off semi-final second leg.
The Imps are holding a 2-0 victory after a dominant display on Wednesday night, meaning that they’ll be focused on retaining their lead while Lee Johnson’s side will need to go gung-ho to try and claw back the two-goal deficit.
A clash with Blackpool at Wembley Stadium awaits the winner of this one and so we’re expecting a highly entertaining clash.
Kick-off is at 3.30pm this afternoon and Football League World are in position in the Stadium Of Light press box where we have just received the confirmed team news ahead of the clash.

Lee Johnson has made four changes for the visit of Lincoln City.
