James Hunter has now shared some big Sunderland injury news involving Aiden McGeady.
The Lowdown: Injury doubts
There have been some major doubts shared over whether McGeady will be able to play at the Stadium of Light again this season, given that he has been ruled out since November with a serious knee injury.
Should Sunderland start McGeady?
However, an update has now been provided on the Irishman ahead of their game at home to Shrewsbury Town in League One on Friday afternoon.
The Latest: Could still play
Taking to Twitter before Friday’s action, The Chronicle journalist Hunter has now shared an update on McGeady’s fitness, claiming that he ‘might yet play’ for the Wearside club before the campaign finishes:
“Aiden McGeady set to step up his recovery next week – and might yet play some part for Safc this season.”
The Verdict: Big boost
Given that there were originally doubts over his involvement in any capacity this term, the fact that McGeady could still play a part in the run-in is no doubt a big boost.
The winger currently ranks as their fourth-best performer in League One, having scored three goals and made a further four assists, while he also ranks highly among his teammates in terms of average shots, key passes, crosses and through balls per match in the division (WhoScored).
Alex Neil’s team could really do with the 36-year-old’s experience on top of his quality, as they look to chase promotion up to the Championship.
