Plymouth Argyle vs Sunderland [15:00 BST]

The Black Cats need three points from their final two games to ensure their position in the League One play-off spots.

Lee Johnson's side are without a win in their last seven games and have gone from League One title challengers to play-off strugglers.

Sunderland need a win to stop the rot and relieve some pressure ahead of the final game of the season.

Today's opponents, Plymouth, have not won since April 2 when they beat fellow League One strugglers AFC Wimbledon.

Ryan Lowe's side are safe from relegation and have little to play for.

Argyle will be no pushover having defeated the Black Cats 2-1 at the Stadium of Light earlier this season.

Plymouth vs Sunderland team news as Charlie Wyke misses out through injury.

Lee Johnson made four changes to the side that started the midweek defeat against Blackpool on Wearside.

The Black Cats boss had said on Wednesday that there were injury doubts over key players, and 30-goal top scorer Charlie Wyke was absent as was Aiden McGeady.

They were replaced by Ross Stewart and Jordan Jones respectively.

Aiden O'Brien dropped to the bench, with Jack Diamond coming into the side.

And Conor McLaughlin made his return following hernia surgery earlier this month, coming in at right-back which freed Max Power to move into midfield where Grant Leadbitter made way and was included on the bench.

Plymouth manager Ryan Lowe made three changes, in his case to the side that lost at Oxford last weekend.

Kelland Watts, Conor Grant, and Ryan Hardie came into the side in place of Sam Woods, Byron Moore, and Luke Jephcott.
