Duo back from bans to face Villa

The pair missed Saturday’s disappointing 1-1 home draw with lowly

Portsmouth through suspension, but are both available again as the

Black Cats look for just their second league win in eight attempts.

Striker Kenwyne Jones is expected to shake off a shoulder problem

picked up at the weekend, while midfielder Lee Cattermole is back

in training after a medial ligament injury and could play for the

reserves at Hartlepool on Wednesday. John Mensah (calf) has also

returned to training, but Bolo Zenden (hamstring), Anton Ferdinand

(ankle) and Craig Gordon (broken arm) remain on the sidelines.

Sunderland (from): Fulop, Carson, Bardsley, Richardson, McCartney,

Da Silva, Turner, Nosworthy, Cana, Reid, Malbranque, Henderson,

Campbell, Jones, Bent, Healy, Murphy, Meyler, Reed, Noble.
