Dion Sanderson is not expected to play again this season after the on-loan Sunderland man suffered a back injury.
Whilst they didn’t explain the full severity of the injury, they have confirmed that Sanderson is expected to miss the final weeks of the season and any play-off games that would follow.
With the 21-year-old having established himself as a key performer for Sunderland since joining on a temporary basis from Wolves, it’s not the news that the fans wanted to hear.
Which club did Sunderland sign each of these 25 players from?
The return of Bailey Wright is a welcome boost for Johnson, but it doesn’t take away from the fact that Sanderson will be sorely missed.
Here we look at some of the comments to the injury update from Twitter…
League 1 next season. Scandalous we went into the season playing 3 CB and we had only 5. One of whom was Feeney. We finished last season with 6. Cm injured too.
