The 27-year-old Scotland international told the Sunderland Echo: "I've missed both 3-0s when we've been there, so I'm looking forward to it.

"I wasn't even at St James' for both of them. I was stuck watching television with a moon boot on.

"But we've got confidence that we can go there and win it again. We've done it before, so why can't we do it again?

"There's a lot of confidence around the team at the moment, despite the draws. We're keeping the door shut at the back, which is great for the defenders. We know if we can get a few goals, then we'll pick up a win."
