Bruce boosted by Wickham scans

BY foxsports • November 8, 2011

The 18-year-old striker suffered suspected ligament damaged just seconds into Saturday's 1-0 Premier League defeat at Manchester United, and Bruce was bracing himself to lose Wickham for a lengthy spell in the immediate aftermath of the game. However, initial scans have suggested the outlook may be less gloomy, and the Black Cats will learn the full extent of any damage later this week. Bruce said: "Initial scans are encouraging, but hopefully we will know more by the end of the week." Wickham himself revealed the better news in a tweet last night. He said: "Scans showing injury not as bad as first thought, waiting to see a knee specialist later in the week."
