https://www.thenorthernecho.co.uk/sport/19281110.sunderland-ready-admit-10-000-fans-play-offs/ SUNDERLAND are already working on plans that should see around 10,000 spectators admitted to the Stadium of Light for the home leg of the club’s play-off semi-final. The Black Cats guaranteed their play-off place when they won at Plymouth Argyle last weekend, with Sunday’s final game of the regular season against Northampton Town set to determine the identity of their semi-final opponents and the schedule for the two-legged tie. If the season were to end today, Sunderland would be taking on Lincoln City in the last four, but depending on what happens on Sunday, they could yet find themselves lining up against Blackpool, Lincoln or whichever of Portsmouth, Oxford or Charlton ends up filling the final play-off place. They could also end up in either semi-final, with the first last-four clash scheduled for Tuesday, May 18th and Friday, May 21st, and the two legs of the second game due to take place on Wednesday, May 19th and Saturday, May 22nd. Depending on where they finish, Sunderland could still be either home or away first.
