Sunderland: Black Cats gifted Jack Clarke injury boost

Sunderland: Black Cats gifted Jack Clarke injury boost -Sunderland News

Sunderland have been gifted an injury boost before they play Middlesbrough in the Championship tonight.

The Lowdown: Northeast clash

It is a battle of two clubs from the northeast at the Riverside Stadium, from where Tony Mowbray’s team will be hoping to come away with all three points.

A win for the visitors would take them into the play-off places in the table, and even though it is still early days, the signs are promising in their first season back after winning promotion from League One.

The Latest: Clarke fit

As per Sunderland’s official website, Jack Clarke is now ‘expected to be fine’ for the match, despite a ‘precautionary withdrawal’ last time out against Rotherham United.

He suffered a ‘calf knock’ late on in Wednesday’s win over the Millers, but it looks as if the winger has recovered in time to play against Middlesbrough.

Sunderland fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

The Verdict: Boost for Sunderland

It is certainly a boost for Mowbray and Sunderland to see Clarke fit and ready to play after picking up a knock last time out.

The 21-year-old currently ranks as the Wearside club’s second-best performer in the Championship so far this season, with two goals, three assists and two man-of-the-match awards to his name (WhoScored).

Therefore, the Black Cats will surely feel as if they have a better chance of winning with Clarke in the team than without him.
