POMPEY are facing a long-trek north to take on Sunderland this weekend. 

The Blues and the Black Cats will reignite their rivalry from last season at the Stadium of Light on Saturday. 

Portsmouth got the better of Sunderland at Fratton Park in the league as well as triumphing in the Checkatrade Trophy final but lost 1-0 on aggregate during the play-offs in May. 

If you are not able to make the long-trip up to the North East this weekend, the game has been selected for TV coverage.
