Duo back from bans to face Villa

BY foxsports • December 14, 2009

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.
