Sunderland have discovered their opening opponents in the FA Cup after the first-round draw this weekend.

The Black Cats announced on their official Twitter account that they will once again face off against Mansfield Town. Sunderland lost to the Stags in this stage of the FA Cup last season.

With Lee Johnson’s side flying in League One, Sunderland could be much more prepared to take on Mansfield, and this FA Cup draw offers the northeast side the perfect chance to claim revenge.

Mansfield currently sit 22nd in League Two, and Sunderland will no doubt be eyeing a big scoreline against the fourth-tier side following the FA Cup this weekend.

However, some Sunderland fans on social media are not so keen on playing against Mansfield for a second year in a row. Whilst the chance for revenge is there, there’s also an opportunity for the Stags to again claim a scalp.
