Cattermole blow for Black Cats

Lee Cattermole is likely to miss the trip to Wigan after jarring his injured knee in practice

Sunderland skipper Lee Cattermole has suffered a setback in his bid to return from injury.

The Black Cats midfielder, who was used as a substitute in the midweek FA Cup third-round replay defeat by Bolton following a lengthy spell on the sidelines with knee ligament damage, jarred the knee in a practice match on Thursday and is likely to miss Saturday's Barclays Premier League trip to Wigan.

Manager Martin O'Neill said: "He had a bit of a setback there. We are certainly hoping it's not as long as it was before, that would be terrible. But it is a setback and I would say he would be doubtful for tomorrow."
