Speaking ahead of the showpiece fixture, under 23 head coach Elliott Dickman said: “To reach the final and overcoming some top opposition in the process has in itself been a great achievement for the players and we now want to finish the job.
“Playing at the Stadium of Light is always a fantastic experience for our younger players. To do so in front of a big crowd will be a fitting reward for them and with free entry we hope to see as many Sunderland fans as possible here to support the young players.”
