Another injury update from Sunderland, another injury setback for Duncan Watmore.
JR: We still have some missing, but some are edging closer. Aiden has had a full week training and @mp_1825 is getting closer too. Duncan has picked up a knock and both @Charliewyke1 and @Ethan_robson8 are unavailable.#SAFC pic.twitter.com/dIqdyOntJC

Jack Ross confirmed in his pre-match press conference ahead of Sunderland’s weekend game against Ipswich Town that the 25-year-old winger had picked up a knock and will be unavailable for the second League One game of the season.
Watmore has been a constant fixture on the medical table at Sunderland, missing 117 games in total for the northeast side as injury numbers from Transfermarkt show.
As you would expect, Black Cat supporters have grown agitated about how often the attacker has missed out on games due to injury, and some took to social media to vent their frustration over Watmore following this latest news from the Sunderland boss.
Here is what some Sunderland fans had to say on Twitter to Watmore’s latest injury problem…
Duncan is very injury prone just get rid

Watmore injured again? Sell him before it’s too late. Spends more time in the physio getting leg massages than he actually does on the pitch.

Watmore must’ve been injured on Saturday. He looked like he’d won a competition to play with the first team.
