Danny's ready to roll

by Stuart Vose

New signing available for clash with Royals.

Danny Graham can’t wait to get out on the pitch as he gears up for tomorrow’s game against Reading.

Sunderland’s new boy trained with his team-mates this morning and is in the travelling squad for the trip to the Madejski Stadium.

Graham only joined the club yesterday in a £5m deal and was straight into match preparations for Saturday’s key Barclays Premier League clash.

“It’ll be good to get straight into it,” said Graham, who faced Reading with former club Swansea back in October.

“It will be a difficult game. Reading coming back from 2-0 down [against Chelsea in midweek] shows what great character they’ve got.

“We expect to face a good team but we are going there to win.

“I’m glad to get going straight away, training with the boys and then travelling for that first game.

“I’m really looking forward to it – the match can’t come quickly enough.”
