A gala hosted by the Bernard’s gala has been dubbed “the perfect evening out”.
It was a fitting name for a game that has been played at Bernards’ St James’ Park since January 2018.
Bernards, who won the FA Cup in January 2019, had to play at home to Millwall on Tuesday, while Sunderland are still trying to get a win over West Brom.
However, the atmosphere at the ground has been very good so far.
There have been many social media posts and messages of support, with many of the fans travelling in from the North West.
In the stands, fans have also started singing “I love you Bernard”.
The Bernards have won all four of their games in the FA cup so far, and are now two points clear of Chelsea, who are three points behind them in the Premier League.
They host Tottenham Hotspur in the first leg on Saturday.
