Sunderland’s Stewart taps in for playoff lead against Sheffield Wednesday

Sunderland’s former owner Sir Bob Murray once likened the team’s home to a fabulous theatre, filled with wonderful audiences who were consistently let down by some awful actors.Alex Neil’s players are striving to prove exceptions to that rule and did not disappoint a crowd of 44,742 at the Stadium of Light. It was a record attendance for an English Football League playoff semi-final and the majority present delighted in watching Ross Stewart give Sunderland a slender advantage ahead of Monday night’s second leg in South Yorkshire.
