Bruce: No problems with Mignolet

The 22-year-old Belgian will finish the season as the Black Cats’

number one following Craig Gordon’s knee operation this week and he

will be hoping to make amends for two mistakes that cost his side

dear at Birmingham last weekend. Bruce fully expects Mignolet, who

has made 18 Premier League appearances this season, to bounce back

in style. He said: “The kid’s done fantastically well since Craig

broke his arm in the summer. Simon I’ve got no problems with at

all. He made a mistake last week but in training this week he’s

back to his best again. “He’s young but he’s got the ability not to

let what happened last week affect him. That’s what goalkeepers are

all about. They are going to make mistakes, even the great ones,

it’s about how you respond and making sure you don’t make any

more.”
