The good, the bad and the ugly. Win the Checkatrade Trophy Final edition of Guess the Score and you can choose from any item at the website of our friends from 3Retro, purveyors of fine football shirts … Portsmouth supporters are invited to take part and, maybe, choose from general football tops since there seems to be no Pompey presence at 3Retro …

Win and go up in second place (Luton are already looking champions-elect). Win but have to settle for the playoffs. Lose and come second. Lose out on both counts.

There are plenty of possible combinations so let us for now enjoy a return to Wembley, being part of a crowd of 80,000+ and maybe seeing a victory that will be followed by the run-in necessary to win promotion without the agony of playoffs.

We hope you are enjoying the fruits of our collective efforts to provide interesting buildup to Sunday’s game.

In case you need reminding, please take a look above all at Peter Sixsmith’s latest spellbinding series, Wembley a Day, in which he shares memories of each of the previous occasions he has attended big games at the national stadium.

The prize for the winner of Guess the Score will be the first to enter the correct score at the end of proper play (whether that is full time with a result or after extra time) AND the ultimate winner if penalties are required. Obviously, you should not enter a shootout outcome if you are going for an outright winner after 90 or 120 minutes. And don’t bother with a score/miss shootout breakdown, unless you want to.

Usual rules apply; eg you must have a UK delivery address. 3Retro products can be seen at the company’s website: for all items or for those relating to SAFC. Any purchase you make helps Salut! Sunderland keep wolves from the door.

Ha’way the Lads.

      Lesley: you were pipped by John Mac with the same scoreline. I hope you’re both right but would you care to offer a variation? Check the earlier ones to avoid duplication

    A quick reminder of the main rule. Only the first people to post the correct scoreline (as defined in the article) can win the prize. there are already some duplicates above.
