Vito Mannone will make his long-awaited return from elbow surgery on Wednesday when Sunderland take on Notts County in the Checkatrade Trophy.
Speaking ahead of the game, first-team coach Robbie Stockdale confirmed his side would include "three or four senior players to compliment the younger ones" for the clash against their League Two counterparts. Mannone has been side-lined since August but tonight will be the goalkeepers "comeback game" and he should be joined by another long-term absentee who is ready to step up his recovery from summer knee surgery: "Seb [Larsson] will play but we aren’t putting a timescale on how long," said Stockdale before adding. "Jason [Denayer] and Donald [Love] will [also] play," while a decision on Adnan Januzaj, who has recently recovered from an ankle ligament injury, will not be made until the last moment.
