Breaking News ! Sunderland boss Lee Johnson has admitted he has one eye on a trip to Wembley Stadium this season. The head coach said that getting to the final of the Papa John's Trophy final would be a huge opportunity to win some silverware with the Black Cats. Johnson is no stranger to the competition and was at the Barnsley helm when they reached the final of the EFL Trophy, but would depart for Bristol City before the final. The Wearsider's made light work of their League Two counterparts, Port Vale as they strolled into the Quarter Finals of the competition last night. Speaking after Sunderland's win against the Valiants, Johnson said: "The boys administered what I was after. It's an opponent that's in another league and therefore you have to deal with their mentality coming into it and your mentality has to be strong. "It was a chance for a few that had performed well in training to show what they were worth, which I thought they did and they did very well.

. There was a couple of things that we hadn't performed well in the last couple of games. We need a big increase and that came. "I think it's an opportunity for silverware and I think the last time we won at Wembley was 73. It's an opportunity for the club and the fans to have a day our or a virtual day out. "We want to try and win every match we play and like I say, build the momentum, build the performances. "I don't think it's a secret that the league would take precedent against that cup but the further you get towards the later rounds you have to constantly judge where you league position is, and balance off the risk and reward against the game."
