Bramble worry for Black Cats

BY foxsports • April 3, 2011

The club announced on their website ahead of Sunday's 5-0 defeat at Manchester City that Bramble would miss the game after suffering cartilage damage, although it is not yet clear whether it is a recurrence of the problem the 29-year-old had surgery for earlier in the campaign. Speaking after the 5-0 defeat at Eastlands, Bruce said: "Bramble had an operation a few months ago and he has never felt quite comfortable. "He had a scan the other day and he could miss the rest of the season. "We've been told (he needs) complete rest at the moment." Another knee injury victim Fraizer Campbell, who has not made a first-team appearance for the Black Cats since August, had been expected to feature in the squad to face City but was also ruled out after suffering a late setback. Bruce said: "Fraizer Campbell twisted his knee yesterday in training and he will have a scan. "We are keeping our fingers crossed that it is not a recurrence of the knee injury that he had in August."
