Gordon ready for Cats return

04 Feb 2009 - 09:46:50

Sunderland goalkeeper Craig Gordon is relishing the opportunity to return to action after two months on the sidelines with an ankle injury.

The 26-year-old Scotland international is poised to be included in the Black Cats side for the FA Cup fourth round replay with Blackburn Rovers, having had to watch on since the 4-1 home loss to Bolton Wanderers in late November.

Gordon said: "It's been a while so I'm looking forward to getting back into action and hopefully have a good game.

"It's always good to know that you're going to be playing in the next game and it's been a while for me, so I'm sure I'll be getting that adrenaline burst and excitement going in to the game.

"I've been training for about two weeks now and I had been hoping to get a reserve match or a friendly game under my belt first. That didn't work out, but I'm still ready to start playing competitive games.

"It's a chance for me to get back in and do my job, then it's up to the manager to decide, but I just need to do as well as I can."

Marton Fulop has impressed in the absence of Gordon, who joined the Black Cats from Heart for £9million in the summer of 2007.
