Sunderland boss Steve Bruce faces an anxious wait over central defender John Mensah as his injury problems continue.  

The Ghana international is battling a hamstring injury ahead of Saturday's Barclays Premier League clash with Wigan in which the Black Cats will attempt to end a 10-game run without a win.  

Bruce said: 'John Mensah has got a bit of a nick in his hamstring and we will see how he is in the next 24-48 hours. But he is an obvious doubt.'
