Sunderland’s Goalscorer and Captain Ruled Out Of Newcastle Match

9 years ago

With the derby match only just over two weeks away, our rivals have been dealt at least one massive blow.

Top scorer Steven Fletcher, who at times has seemed to be almost single-handedly keeping the mackems afloat this season, has been ruled out for the rest of the season and of course the match at St.James’ Park.

In addition, their captain Lee Cattermole is also out until next season, though how much of a miss he will be to the visitors is open to question, considering his idiotic behaviour in previous matches.

This double injury news has come on the same day that remaining derby day tickets went on sale to members and promptly sold out in only six hours.

Hopefully results between now and the 14th April will let us enjoy the occasion and fingers crossed we’ll still have our European dream alive.
