Lee Cattermole to miss Southampton game with groin injury
Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce will be without Lee Cattermole for their Barclays Premier League clash with Southampton at the Stadium of Light on Saturday.
Cattermole limped out of last week's 6-2 defeat at Everton with a recurrence of a long-standing groin problem and has been ruled out until after the international break.
But John O'Shea (hamstring), Younes Kaboul (groin), Ola Toivonen (groin) and Fabio Borini (ankle) are all available for selection again after missing last week's defeat due to injury.
Provisional squad: Pantilimon, Mannone, Jones, Van Aanholt, Yedlin, Matthews, O'Shea, Kaboul, Coates, Brown, M'Vila, Larsson, Gomez, Johnson, Toivonen, Lens, Borini, Defoe, Fletcher, Watmore.
