Sunderland: Batth, Broadhead and Pritchard in training -Sunderland News

Sunderland have now posted an exciting training update ahead of their game at home to Gillingham in League One on Saturday afternoon.

The Lowdown: Close to return?

Speaking ahead of the match at the weekend, Alex Neil revealed that both Alex Pritchard and Nathan Broadhead have recovered ‘quicker than anticipated‘ after originally thinking that they were going to be out for the longer term.

He did not rule out the possibility of them returning against Gillingham, while Danny Batth could also make his return, having played for the U23s.

How well do you know Super Kev, Sunderland fans? Find out with our quiz! To start off, how much did the Black Cats pay for Phillips in 1997?

The fact that they are training outside and with the rest of the squad suggests that they could all now feature on Saturday.

The Verdict: Big boost

It would certainly be a big boost for the Wearside club if all three players are available against Gillingham.

Pritchard and Broadhead have ranked among their best players in the division so far this season, while Batth has also made a mark since signing from Stoke City in the January transfer window.

The central defender is ranking highly among his new teammates in terms of average aerial duels won, tackles, interceptions, clearances and blocks per game (WhoScored), and so having him back will give Neil another handy squad option.
