Following Rangers' fans covid breach, SAFC have urged supporters to stay at home and stay safe this weekend whatever the result.

Lee Johnson said: “I wish our supporters were travelling with us this weekend because we want to give them success and we want their passion and voice to drive us on. We all want to share games like Sunday with loved ones, but the time to be together again will come. Until then, follow the guidance, stay safe and above all else, enjoy the occasion, but please do so within the boundaries of your own home.”

Max Power added: “We all remember the amazing scenes from our last trip to Wembley - they were unforgettable and it will not be the same without our supporters or our families and friends. As a club, we are going to do all we can to bring the trophy back to Wearside, but win or lose, it’s important that everyone associated with the club follows the guidance in place and stays safe.”
