Gus Poyet will assess a number of players ahead of Saturdays’ trip to Old Trafford with Will Buckley [knee], Billy Jones [ankle] and Jack Rodwell [calf] all close to making return.
Buckley has been out since the end of January while calf and groin problems have kept Rodwell sidelined after his withdrawal in the FA Cup home draw against Fulham. The former Manchester City player has been struggling but Poyet confirmed the midfielder is hopeful having narrowly missed GW26 following an adverse reaction to increased training intensity. With Emanuele Giaccherini out until at least April - after a specialist confirmed extensive ankle damage - the Black Cats have been boosted by the return of Lee Cattermole who steadied the ship last time out as Sunderland drew with West Brom. The return of the midfield enforcer will be crucial during the season run-in. Wed, Feb 25, 2015 05:28:00 PM
