Kenny Jackett’s men finished fourth in the table on 88 points, with the fifth-place Black Cats three points adrift.

The two sides renew their rivalry in the play-offs having met three times already this season.

It’s Pompey who currently hold the bragging rights, with wins at Fratton Park in December and in the Checkatrade Trophy final at Wembley in March.

Jackett’s troops earned a 1-1 draw in Wearside on April 27.
