Our quick guide reveals all you need to know to watch the second leg of the Portsmouth vs Sunderland playoff online, including full live stream details and the kick-off time.

Kenny Jackett would have been particularly disappointed at the first leg result, considering that Pompey were up against 10 men for the final 20 minutes. However, in the end Portsmouth were fortunate to not go two goals down, with Maguire hitting the woodwork late on.

The Mackems will have revenge on their minds, having had their hearts broken by Portsmouth in the Checkatrade Trophy final back in March.

That match had it all. Sunderland led twice but Portsmouth managed to take the game all the way to penalties, with Lee Cattermole the only player to miss his spotkick. More of the same tonight, please.

The winning team will face either Charlton or Doncaster (who play tomorrow) at Wembley on May 26. Whichever side you’re on, it’s a huge game, and streaming it could barely be easier. Here’s how to do it.
