Injuries mount for Sunderland16/11/2012 - 18:17:19
Sunderland boss Martin O’Neill faces late decisions over a series of players ahead of Sunday’s Premier League trip to Fulham.
Scotland striker Steven Fletcher (calf) and Republic of Ireland keeper Keiren Westwood (thigh) missed their respective international matches in midweek, with 18-year-old Jordan Pickford on standby to provide the back-up to Simon Mignolet.
In addition, full-back Phil Bardsley (hamstring) and midfielder Lee Cattermole (knee) remain doubts for the game at Craven Cottage after missing Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at Everton.
Provisional squad: Mignolet, Westwood, Pickford, Bardsley, O’Shea, Kilgallon, Cuellar, Bramble, Rose, Cattermole, Gardner, Colback, McClean, Larsson, Sessegnon, Saha, Fletcher, Campbell, Wickham, McFadden.
