Fulham v SAFC

Skipper and striker to miss remaining games

by Kate Smith

Duo sidelined for rest of season.

Sunderland have confirmed today that striker Steven Fletcher and Captain Lee Cattermole will miss the rest of the current campaign due to injury.

Cattermole underwent an operation on his knee earlier today and Fletcher sustained ankle ligament damage whilst on international duty with Scotland.

It is not known at this stage if Fletcher will require an operation, with the injury requiring further assessment in the coming weeks.

Both players will play no further part in the Black Cats 2012-13 Barclays Premier League season.
