Gordon: Injury was avoidable

13 Nov 2009 - 08:25:49

Sunderland goalkeeper Craig Gordon has voiced his unhappiness with Tottenham Hotspur striker Jermain Defoe over the clash which left him with a broken arm.

Scotland international Gordon had to be replaced midway through the second half of the 2-0 defeat at White Hart Lane, having been injured as he dived at Defoe's feet to snuff out a chance for the home side.

Gordon later told his club's official website: "I'm really disappointed after the result and the injury at Tottenham.

"It's a real blow personally as I feel I was really starting to discover my best form for Sunderland after what's been a really difficult time with injuries over the past couple of years.

"I've been completely injury-free since coming back for the Norwich game, but now after this broken arm, I'll be out again for a number of weeks.

"I thought at the time it was a poor challenge. After looking at it again I haven't changed my mind.

"It's always dangerous diving down at strikers feet, but I feel Jermain might have done more to avoid the collision."
