According to Sky Sports’ Keith Downie, Sunderland have cancelled several tickets in Wolves’ away end for the final day of the season at the Stadium of Light – claiming many have ‘fallen into the hands’ of NUFC fans hoping to cause trouble.
As we all know, League One beckons for the Mackems, with Coleman’s side 6 points from safety with just 3 games to go.
Cash turnstiles had been closed for Sunderland’s last home game with Norwich in fear of Newcastle fans infiltrating the stadium to celebrate their demise, however, to this day, I’m not aware of a single Mag who had planned to do this.
NUFC (and Wolves) fans have since hit back following the latest claims from Sky (who seem to have nothing better to report on), explaining how inconceivable their latest claims appear to be:
In the away end? Given you'd have to be a Wolves STH and been to at least a dozen Wolves away games this season to get one that's some going! Can't see many Wolves fans who've done that just flogging them on to Geordies.

NUFC’s head of Marketing Communications Lee Marshall has got involved too, admitting how this just ‘doesn’t quite stack up’ in response to Sky’s claims today:
Something about this just doesn't quite stack up for me… ? https://t.co/ctftONqXb2

Remarkable that no-one on Twitter knows anyone that's been turned back by police at Sunderland, or had their tickets for the Wolves game cancelled. pic.twitter.com/GDRDl0ubIO
