NEW SIGNING: Adam Johnson

SUNDERLAND are expecting a bumper Capital One Cup crowd tomorrow night, in the wake of the club’s Premier League game against Reading being cancelled.

The Black Cats face League Two side Morecambe in the cup at the Stadium of Light tomorrow, kick-off 7.45pm and a good crowd was always on the cards with Adam Johnson expected to make his Sunderland debut in the game.

But the unfortunate postponement of Saturday’s game against the Royals as a result of a water-logged pitch has left Sunderland fans - excited by the twin signings of Adam Johnson and Steven Fletcher – looking to get their fix of football tomorrow night.

A busy day was expected at the club’s box office but plenty more fans are likely to take advantage of the chance to pay on the day for the cup tie.

Prices are £12 for adults and £6 for over-65s and under 16s on the day with cash turnstiles available.

Turnstiles will be open from 6:15pm: West Stand; 5,6,7,8; East Stand; 35, 36; South East Corner; 51, 52; South Stand; 53, 54, 61, 62.
