Sunderland face Doncaster Rovers this evening in Sky Bet League One as they look to get another big three points in their bid for promotion.
The Black Cats have really started to roll in recent weeks and they have shot up the table, now just sitting a handful of points away from top spot.
Indeed, the summit of the third tier is looking very congested at the moment and it’ll be the side with the most momentum that ends up earning a spot in the Championship.
A win over Rovers tonight will help their cause no end, then, but one thing is for sure, Elliot Embleton will not be featuring any time soon.
The talented youngster has suffered a fresh injury setback:
A player Black Cats fans want to see play more for the club, this news has naturally been met with disappointment for him.
Let’s see what has been said:
Has no luck. Finally gets his chance and now injured just about all season

He may still be growing. Who knows. But it's such a shame. Watched him since he was 12. The kid is super talented. Probably our most technically gifted player.
