Fabio Borini: Played in the first-half at Cardiff

The 22-year-old Italian fell ill at half-time in Saturday's 2-2 draw with Cardiff and was taken to hospital on a drip.

But Borini was released by medical staff last night after his condition improved.

Manager Gus Poyet revealed Borini had been suffering from a virus in the run-up to the game and would not join his team-mates on their flight back to the north east.

Speaking after the game, he said: "We were really, really worried as he was really, really sick so the doctor decided rightly to take him to hospital but he has been released now. It was a virus or sickness, so no problems."

A club spokesman said on Sunday: "Fabio is feeling much better and will return to Wearside today."

Borini had played in the first half for Sunderland, who fought back from 2-0 down to claim a draw at the Cardiff City Stadium.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
