SUN­DER­LAND skip­per Lee Cattermole is ready to play through the pain for the rest of the sea­son.

The 24-year-old is nurs­ing a knee lig­a­ment in­jury but is de­ter­mined to fea­ture in the last seven games as Martin O’neill’s men look to fin­ish on a high.

Cattermole came off to­wards the end of the 3-3 draw with Man City as a pre­cau­tion.

But the no-non­sense mid­fielder won’t be taken out of the fir­ing line as the Black Cats bid to equal their bestever Premier League fin­ish of sev­enth.

Cattermole said: “I felt my me­dial a lit­tle against Ever­ton last week, but I was fine af­ter that.

“I just felt it again in the clos­ing stages at City. I just tweaked it, but it won’t be a prob­lem.”
