Bram­ble to miss rest of the sea­son

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

TI­TUS BRAM­BLE could be out for the rest of the sea­son af­ter suf­fer­ing a fresh in­jury set-back.

Sun­der­land’s crocked de­fender hasn’t fig­ured since pick­ing up a nasty Achilles prob­lem on Box­ing Day.

The 30-year-old was forced to shelve his come­back last month af­ter break­ing down.

And the for­mer New­cas­tle cen­tre-back is now fac­ing at least an­other month on the side­lines af­ter hav­ing the in­jury put in a pro­tec­tive boot for the next three weeks.

Black Cats boss Martin O’neill re­vealed: “Ti­tus has put a boot on it now and that’s go­ing to keep him out of ac­tion for a few weeks, so it’s a real set­back.”

Ryan No­ble is set for a loan switch to Hartle­pool.

The Black Cats’ North-east neigh­bours want the 20-year-old, who has a hat­ful of goals this sea­son for the re­serves.
