Henderson eyes City clash

BY foxsports • February 24, 2010

The 19-year-old has been sidelined since damaging ankle ligaments during the 1-1 Premier League draw with Wigan on February 6. It was initially feared his breakthrough season could be over, but while no date has been set by the club's medics, he is hoping to be back in action by March 14. Henderson told the Sunderland Echo: "The physios haven't mentioned any exact game I could be back for, but I have looked at the fixtures and I would like to get playing again perhaps for the Man City home game. "I got a foot injury when I was on loan at Coventry about this time last season and it finished my season, so I'm pleased this one is not as serious. "I won't rush myself and will be guided by the physios, but if I can get back a week or so earlier than they think, I will be very pleased. I can walk on the ankle okay now and I might start some light jogging before the weekend and take it from there."
