Colback targets regular run

Henderson, 20, has already made a senior start for England on the

back of his brilliant form for the Black Cats and has been linked

with a move to one of the Premier League’s top sides. Colback’s

aims are more modest but, after starting Sunderland’s last two

games alongside Henderson, the 21-year-old is hoping he can finish

the season strongly. Colback was delighted to see his team-mate

score twice in Saturday’s 4-2 win over Wigan, and told the club’s

official website: “If Jordan had any doubters he well and truly

proved them wrong. I’m over the moon for him. “He’s always created

for us and it was great to see him get two goals. I’m delighted to

see him doing well. Hopefully I have proved one or two of my

doubters wrong too and shown I can cut it at this level. “But I am

not getting too carried away. I will keep my head down and take

each game as it comes. Hopefully I can keep my place from now until

the end of the season.”
