Midfielder eyes festive return

Steve Bruce is confident Sunderland midfielder Lee Cattermole will recover from his knee injury and be fit for the Christmas period.

The former Wigan star has not played for the Black Cats since he suffered the injury in the 1-0 win over Liverpool in October and was initially not expected to be back until the new year.

However, he has made good progress in recent weeks and Bruce says he could be back for the home clash against Everton on Boxing Day and also feature in the trip to Blackburn two days later.

Bruce said: "Christmas is a big time for us and Lee should be available."
