Wycombe Wanderers will play Sunderland in the 2022 League One play-off final at Wembley Stadium.

The showpiece at the home of English football was confirmed on May 9 when the Black Cats drew 1-1 away at Sheffield Wednesday but won the overall tie 2-1 on aggregate. 

Sunderland won the first leg 1-0 at the Stadium of Light thanks to a Ross Stewart goal on May 6, before Lee Gregory levelled the tie at Hillsborough three days later.

However, in the third of 10 minutes that were added on at the end of the match, Patrick Roberts, who has played in the Premier League for Fulham, Manchester City and Norwich City, scored the decisive goal to send Alex Neil's men to Wembley.

A look back at the previous battles

It will be the first time that the two sides will meet in the final, with the previous six outings between Wycombe and Sunderland taking place in the regular League One season. 

In those six matches, there have been three draws, two defeats and one Wycombe win.

The first two meetings were in the 2018/19 season which both ended in 1-1 draws.

The return fixture, in March 2019 at Adams Park, saw three players get shown a red card following a huge melee on the touchline.

In the end, Nathan Tyson and George Honeyman were sent off, whilst Marcus Bean received two yellows for two fouls.

The following season, a Darius Charles goal in October 2019 recorded Wanderers' first victory over Sunderland, which is when he coined the 'Our House' phrase. 

However, in the return fixture in January 2020, Wycombe were smashed 4-0 at the Stadium of Light, being 3-0 down inside 21 minutes.

Fast forward to this season and Sunderland easily defeated Wycombe 3-1 at the SoL, before a dramatic 3-3 draw was played out at AP in January this year.

Joe Jacobson got an injury-time equaliser that day and currently, Sunderland are yet to win at the home of Wycombe Wanderers.

Ticket information will come out in due course.

The match will take place on Saturday, May 21 at Wembley Stadium with the contest kicking-off at 3pm.
