Sunderland will be desperate to finally secure a return to the Championship when they face Wycombe in the League One play-off final this afternoon.


After relegation in 2018, itโ€™s been four long years in Englandโ€™s third tier for Sunderland and they get their latest attempt at promotion at Wembley against a Wycombe side very familiar with this stage.


Gareth Ainsworthโ€™s side went up to the Championship via the play-off final two seasons ago, before finishing 22nd and getting relegated in the clubโ€™s first ever campaign in the second division.


Theyโ€™re looking to return at the first time of asking - it promises to be an incredibly tight affair, potentially extending beyond 90 minutes.


Sunderland have been given an extra 2,500 tickets, due to Wycombe not selling out their allocation, meaning there will be more than 46,000 Black Cats fans at Wembley.


It has become tradition whenever Sunderland reach a Wembley final, supporters gather in Covent Garden and Trafalgar Square on the night before the match.


Thousands of Sunderland fans lined the streets, singing and chanting, while #SunderlandTakeover was trending on social media on Friday night.


Louis-Dreyfus, who purchased 41 per cent of the club in 2021, was also at Trafalgar Square where he stopped to take pictures with Black Cats supporters.


More than 46,000 Sunderland fans are set to attend the match against Wycombe, after the club received two additional batches of tickets for the fixture.


The last time Sunderland played at Wembley the match was played behind closed doors due to the Covid-19 pandemic, as the Black Cats beat Tranmere Rovers 1-0 in the 2021 Papa Johnโ€™s Trophy final.


Thousands of Sunderland fans are in London gearing up for the League One play-off final against Wycombe Wanderers at Wembley.


Covent Garden and Trafalgar Square were awash with scenes of red and white on Friday night as fans gathered to sing songs and start what they hope will be a weekend of celebrations, in style.


Sunderland beat Sheffield Wednesday over two legs in the play-off semi-final, while Wycombe overcame MK Dons to reach the Wembley final.


Our SAFC Echo team is in London for the weekend bringing you all the coverage of the pre-match scenes and match action, including these fan pictures from Trafalgar Square via Frank Reid and Martin Swinney.


He probably didnโ€™t even know this is Sunderlandโ€™s fourth successive season playing in League One, or that recent trips to Wembley have ended in disappointment for the clubโ€™s travelling supporters.


When the Black Cats last played at the national stadium - a 1-0 win over Tranmere Rovers in Marchโ€™s 2021 Papa Johnโ€™s Trophy final - the match was played behind closed doors during the Covid-19 pandemic.


Since then, there has been another failed play-off campaign, another managerial sacking and more unrest about the clubโ€™s muddled ownership structure.


Sunderland were relegated to League One in 2018 and Neil told BBC Radio Newcastle: "We need to focus on this and what we need to do.


Only in 1990 - when Swindon were demoted for financial irregularities despite winning the final - has a Sunderland team gone up via the knockout route.


Their 1998 defeat by Charlton at Wembley came on penalties after a 4-4 thriller, with local hero Michael Gray missing the crucial spot-kick, while Patrick Bauer's last-minute winner helped the same opposition come out on top against the Black Cats in 2019..


Lee Johnson led the Wearsiders to the semi-finals last season where Lincoln ended their progress, and he had taken them to within two points of top spot when he was sacked in late January.


The subsequent run of good form under Neil has the hallmarks of the teams he built at Hamilton and Norwich - both promoted under his tutelage - in that they have shown an ability to fight back.


Sunderland came from behind to beat Fleetwood, while late goals also earned points against Oxford and Shrewsbury and then progress in the play-off semi-final against Sheffield Wednesday.


Despite being in the Championship as recently as last season, Wycombe are underdogs to an extent at Wembley - something boss Gareth Ainsworth relishes.


The disappointment of going down last term, in particular given Derby's points deduction later and the off-field wrangles between the Chairboys and the Rams, might have been a distraction.


But Ainsworth's side has continued to plough away in the third tier and their 2-1 aggregate triumph over MK Dons in the semi-final highlighted their threat.


"I'm a real positive person and I think if you say things enough, or you fear things enough, they'll happen," Ainsworth told BBC Three Counties Radio.


Hello and welcome to our live blog coverage of Sunderland's Wembley weekend as they take on Wycombe Wanderers in the League One play-off final.


The Black Cats are hoping it's fourth time lucky in their bid to win promotion back to the Championship and kickstart what they hope will be a new era for the club.


Alex Neil's side are favourites, having beaten Sheffield Wednesday in the two-legged semi-final, but they know Gareth Ainsworth's side will provide a tough test.


James Hunter, Matty Hewitt and Aarah Bahrami are in the London all weekend to bring you the latest as it happens from the capital, and Wembley Stadium.


Both sides will be hoping to achieve promotion to the Sky Bet Championship when they meet in the League One Playoff final. Sunderland beat Sheffield Wednesday over two legs in the semi final whilst Wycombe were able to overcome MK Dons in the other semi-final to earn their place in the show piece final.


The 2021/22 League One playoff final gives Sunderland a shot at a Championship return after four seasons in the third tier and Wycombe Wanderers the chance to bounce back immediately following their relegation in 2020/21.


Sunderland finished fifth at the end of the regular season, a point ahead of Wycombe as part of a 13-game run without defeat to end the campaign.


That unbeaten sequence has continued in the playoffs, in which Sunderland beat Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 in the first leg of the semifinals before going through 2-1 on aggregate courtesy of a last-gasp Patrick Roberts strike in the return game in Yorkshire.


Wycombe also showed their spirit to scrape through to the final with a 2-1 aggregate win, surviving a 1-0 second-leg defeat at MK Dons, who had finished three places and six points above them in the table.


Alex Neil has reported an almost clean bill of health among his squad for the first time since he was appointed Sunderland manager in February.


Midfielder Carl Winchester has returned to training following a groin issue, on-loan Union Berlin forward Leon Dajaku has recovered from illness and forward Nathan Broadhead, borrowed from Everton, came back from injury in the dramatic semifinal second leg at Sheffield Wednesday.


Colourful Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth has said he has no new injury worries and described his squad as raring to go ahead of the final.


Club legend Adebayo Akinfenwa, who turned 40 on May 10 and scored a 100th-minute penalty for AFC Wimbledon in the 2016 League Two playoff final at Wembley, could make his final appearance for the Chairboys.


Sunderland's short odds reflect their long unbeaten run and status as one of League One's best-resourced clubs, backed by average home crowds of more than 30,000.


A former Premier League manager after guiding Norwich City up through the Championship playoffs, Neil has not tasted defeat as boss since Sunderland lost his first home game in charge.


Wycombe's odds could be seen as long in light of their own 13-match unbeaten sequence before that defeat at MK Dons, which they were entitled to celebrate as a victory after a gritty display of defending against a team who had been free-scoring at home.


Seeking to secure promotion to the Championship, Sunderland will lock horns with Wycombe Wanderers at Wembley Stadium in the League One playoff final on Saturday afternoon.


The Black Cats are looking to escape the third tier at the fourth time of asking, while the Chairboys will be looking to make an immediate return to the second tier following their relegation 12 months ago.


The 40-year-old boss suffered a 2-1 defeat at home against MK Dons in just his second game in charge, but the Black Cats have since put together a 15-game unbeaten run, including nine victories.


After finishing fifth in the League One table, Sunderland beat Sheffield Wednesday 2-1 on aggregate in the playoff semi-finals, with Patrick Roberts scoring a 93rd-minute winner in the second leg at Hillsborough to set up a showpiece event with Wycombe in the capital.


Sunderland fans will not want to be reminded of their poor record in the playoffs, which has seen them fail to secure promotion in each of their last seven attempts over the last 35 years.


They did, however, taste success the last time that they played at Wembley when they beat Tranmere Rovers 1-0 in the EFL Trophy final in March last year, their first triumph at the home of football in almost 50 years. The Black Cats celebrated their success behind closed doors on that occasion, but on Saturday they will have just over 46,000 supporters cheering them on against Wycombe.


Sunderland have won two and drawn one of their last three meetings with the Chairboys and have scored 10 goals in the process, so they should be confident of finding the net once again this weekend.


The Chairboys secured the final playoff spot on the last day of the season with victory away at Burton Albion, before beating MK Dons 2-1 on aggregate in the semi-finals to book their place at Wembley for the second time in three years.


A slender 1-0 defeat to the Dons in the second leg brought an end to their 13-game unbeaten run, but nevertheless, Wycombe remain in high spirits and will use their recent triumph at Wembley to spur them on this weekend.


Wycombe, who beat Oxford United 2-1 in the 2019-20 final, could become the first team in League One playoff history to win the final twice within a three-year period.


Ainsworth and co know what it takes to win on the big stage, but they head into Saturday's contest having won only one of their six previous meetings against Sunderland, a narrow 1-0 win at Adams Park in October 2019.
