Scottish international Steven Fletcher is hoping to return before the end of the season after aggravating an ankle injury in training.
Fletcher had surgery just over two years ago to remedy a niggling ligament complaint but the problem flared up again and the striker was forced to meet with a specialist in London to have the injury assessed. Dick Advocaat stopped short of ruling Fletcher out for the season but with a little over 3-weeks remaining he does face a race against time; in his absence the Black Cats are likely to opt for a 4-4-2 with Connor Wickham partnering Jermain Defoe. Sunderland face Southampton this weekend and will be hoping for some payback following their early season drubbing at St Marys' [8-nil] – Sebastian Larsson returns from suspension while Adam Johnson will also be included.
