Sunderland changes likely

23 August 2009 10:52
Sunderland boss Steve Bruce has admitted he will have to make changes for Monday night's Carling Cup second round trip to Norwich after a gruelling start to the new season. Bruce claimed after Saturday's 2-1 Barclays Premier League victory over Blackburn that his squad had "hundreds" of knocks. Goalkeeper Marton Fulop had injections in a heel injury before the game, but was clearly hampered and must be a doubt, while midfielder Lee Cattermole played the full 90 minutes despite struggling with a back injury beforehand. Summer signing Paulo da Silva could be handed a debut after working his way towards match fitness following a delay in his arrival from Mexican club Toluca because of administrative problems.
