A Lynden Gooch goal was enough to separate the two sides at Wembley, Gooch taking advantage of a brilliant Aiden McGeady pass.

After the game, Tranmere tweeted: "Absolutely no shame in that performance lads, we go again!

“Congratulations to @SunderlandAFC and good luck for the rest of the season.”

Sunderland don’t have much time to enjoy the cup success, they travel to Accrington Stanley on Wednesday evening.
