Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill was today waiting to hear for how long he will be without skipper Lee Cattermole as he visited a London specialist.

The 24-year-old midfielder headed south after damaging his knee just minutes into Tuesday night's 0-0 draw with QPR amid speculation that he has damaged his medial ligament and could be sidelined for two months.

Cattermole will definitely miss Sunday's Barclays Premier League trip to Norwich, as will central defender John O'Shea, who is battling a calf problem.

Provisional squad: Mignolet, Westwood, Bardsley, Kilgallon, Cuellar, Bramble, Rose, Gardner, Colback, McClean, Larsson, Sessegnon, Saha, Fletcher, Campbell, Wickham, McFadden.
