Sunderland goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon has confirmed that he will be ready for GW1 after his first appearance of the close season during Wednesdays’ win 2-1 over Toronto FC.
Pantilimon has been sidelined since May after picking up a knee injury during the draw with Arsenal at the Emirates – a result which guaranteed the Black Cats PL status for another year. Pantilimon started the 2014/15 campaign as a No.2 on Wearside playing second fiddle to Vito Mannone but following back-to-back defeats in October - which included an 8-nil drubbing at St Mary’s - the Romanian stopper was called into action and didn’t look back registering 11 clean sheets in his 28 starts. Danny Graham and Connor Wickham missed the final game of the North American tour but their problems are only believed to be minor, however Jordi Gomez isn’t progressing as hoped – fractured patellar – and could be out until September.
