Last updated on .From the section League One comments 332

Goals from Elliot Embleton and Ross Stewart gave Sunderland victory over Wycombe in the League One play-off final at Wembley to clinch promotion to the Championship.

Embleton’s 12th-minute strike put the Black Cats ahead as they dominated the match from the beginning.

His blasted effort from outside the area went straight through Wycombe keeper David Stockdale, who then made a string of saves to keep the score at 1-0.

Ross Stewart’s 26th goal of the season – his fifth against Wycombe – gave Sunderland a cushion with 11 minutes to go, as they saw out the game to join Wigan and Rotherham in the second tier next season.
