Team news: McGeady in contention for Play-Off Final

Aiden McGeady is in contention to return this weekend for Sunderland’s Sky Bet League One Play-Off Final against Charlton Athletic.    

The Republic of Ireland winger has missed the Black Cats’ last four games with a foot injury sustained at Accrington Stanley at the start of April.

However, following a period of prolonged rest the 33-year-old is in decent shape to return to action for the Lads’ promotion decider at Wembley Stadium on Sunday, kick-off 3pm.

Speaking to the media at today’s press conference, Jack Ross provided an update that will be like music to Sunderland fans ears.

“He has a chance,” said Ross.

“The two weeks, break he had since being unavailable for the first leg against Portsmouth has helped him.

“We've spoken often enough for his need for a prolonged rest period for him, he won't get that until the summer, but this period of rest has come at a good time for him. 

“We'll be building up his workload as the week goes on and he has a chance of being involved in the game,” he continued.

“We'll make a sensible decision, as we did for the second leg against Portsmouth, and give him every chance.”
