Race on for duo


Sunderland boss Steve Bruce has major doubts over both Lee Cattermole and Asamoah Gyan for the clash with Blackburn.

Bruce, who is looking to bounce back from the home defeat to Blackpool, will hand the pair late fitness tests as they are both suffering with hamstring problems and remain doubts for the home clash with Rovers.

Titus Bramble has returned from injury but there is a doubt over Nedum Onuoha and John Mensah (ankle) Michael Turner and Fraizer Campbell (both knee) are all still on the casualty list.
