Sunderland trio on way back

Danny Rose: One of three Sunderland players closing on comeback

The three players have all missed recent games due to fitness problems, with Tottenham loanee Rose and fellow defender Cuellar struggling with hamstring injuries, while Cattermole suffered a minor setback after returning from a knee problem.

However, with the Black Cats not in action until Tuesday due to the FA Cup fixtures this weekend, O'Neill is optimistic over the trio returning sooner rather than later.

"Hopefully we'll have that bit of extra freshness ahead of Tuesday's game," the manager told the club's official website.

"[The break] is as much about the injured players as anything else - Carlos Cuellar, Danny Rose and Lee Cattermole are all not that far away from being fit again.

"Having won the game [at Wigan] last Saturday, it would have been nice to be involved in the cup again with a chance to play Everton.

"That's gone now, so we can concentrate fully on Tuesday night."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
