Sunderland will be looking to get themselves a big three points tomorrow night as the battle for promotion from League One continues this weekend.
The Black Cats have had a good season so far but they have struggled to turn a number of draws into wins.
Indeed, if they could do more of that they’d be on top of the league but, of course, they are not, and the chase continues.
They face Accrington Stanley tomorrow night, then, and it looks as though Jack Ross will be without Duncan Watmore for this game as he recovers from 2 ACL injuries.
The Black Cats boss revealed:
JR: "Duncan won’t be involved tomorrow night. It’s a blow because his performance on Tuesday was very positive. It’s just the case we’re faced with as he continues to recover from two ACL injuries."#SAFC pic.twitter.com/3zQ5MczPAv

Watmore is back on the scene and has shown some bright flashes in recent games but he isn’t quite up to speed yet and is clearly feeling a little tired.
A rest might do him good, then, with plenty of fans reacting to this news on Twitter.
Let’s take a look, then, at some of the reaction to this update…
Shame because he was our best player going forward on Tuesday.
