SUNDERLAND boss Lee Johnson has made four changes for Sunderland's decisive play-off semi-final second leg against Lincoln.

Ross Stewart and Chris Maguire come into the Black Cats side, with the hosts needing at least two goals to have any chance of progressing to Wembley.

With Grant Leadbitter also returning to the starting side, Sunderland are set to play in a 4-4-2 formation.

Tom Flanagan drops out of the starting side, having been involved in the mix-up that led to Lincoln's second goal on Wednesday, so Luke O'Nien is set to partner Bailey Wright at centre-half.

Lynden Gooch looks like lining up at right-back, with Jordan Jones and Max Power dropping out of the team that started at Sincil Bank.

The other change sees Callum McFadzean replace the injured Denver Hume at left-back.

SUNDERLAND (4-4-2): Burge; Gooch, Wright, O'Nien, McFadzean; Maguire, Leadbitter, Scowen, McGeady; Stewart, Wyke.

Subs: Matthews (gk), Flanagan, Power, O'Brien, Diamond, Winchester, Jones.

LINCOLN (4-3-3): Palmer; Poole, Eyoma, Montsma, Edun; Scully, Bridcutt, Grant; Johnson, Hopper, Rogers.

Subs: Long (gk), Sanders, Bramall, Walsh, McGrandles, Morton, Anderson.
