No new injuries for Sunderland ahead of Aston Villa match
Friday 02 November 2012
Sunderland manager Martin O'Neill has seen no new players join his injured list ahead of tomorrow's Barclays Premier League clash against Aston Villa.
Defender Wes Brown, who is out with a long-term knee injury, has suffered a setback in his recovery which could see him ruled out for a few more weeks, and central defender Titus Bramble (hip flexor) still remains a doubt.
Sunderland lost 1-0 to Middlesbrough on Tuesday night in the Capital One Cup and O'Neill is likely to make several changes to his starting line-up, with goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, midfielder James McClean and winger Sebastian Larsson all set for possible returns.
Provisional squad: Mignolet, Westwood, Bardsley, O'Shea, Kilgallon, Cuellar, Rose, Egan, Cattermole, Gardner, Colback, McClean, Larsson, Sessegnon, Meyler, Saha, Fletcher, Campbell, Wickham, Ji.
