Sunderland’s clash against Lincoln City in the semifinals of the EFL’s Papa Johns Trophy at the Stadium of Light is underway with our coverage at the top of the page

Ordinarily it would be a noisy affair with tens of thousands of fans roaring on Lee Johnson’s side, but we can’t even meet in a pub, let alone the stadium, due to lockdown restrictions

That’s why we decided to give you the fan experience instead. We’re hosting a watch party with our journalists and supporters who will follow the game virtually together and provide humor, reactions and insights into the clash

We will be going live to Soo’s chief soccer writer Phil Smith on SoL throughout the game to record and analyze him Back in the “studio” we have James Copley, Graham Falk, Joe Nicholson, Melissa Johnson and Matty Crichton reviewing the progress of the competition as he enjoys a refreshment or two

We also play Buzzword Bingo – download our bingo card (see below) and if any of the Sky experts or our panel mentions any of the sentences, highlight it or have a sip of whatever you like

And we want you to be involved Submit your comments or messages on social media using the hashtag #SAFCWATCH We will be live at the top of this page and also on our Facebook and Twitter pages from 5 this evening at 45 p.m. (Wednesday 17 February) with all the news, structure and fun of the team
