Sunderland: Tony Mowbray speaks on Elliot Embleton injury blow - Championship News

Sunderland manager Tony Mowbray has shared his thoughts on the injury picked up by Elliot Embleton during the Wearside club’s recent 1-1 draw against Hull City in the Championship

The Lowdown: Sunderland draw against Hull

Sunderland were denied a victory on Saturday as Ross Stewart’s 74th-minute opener was cancelled out by Ozan Tufan’s equaliser eight minutes later.

The Black Cats suffered a blow earlier on in the second half when Embleton was forced off the pitch on a stretcher with a suspected injury which came from a high-boot challenge which earned him a red card from the referee.

This led to Mowbray sharing his thoughts on the matter regarding the midfielder’s injury blow.

The Latest: Mowbray on Embleton injury

Speaking after the match (via Chronicle Live), Mowbray had his say when asked about Embleton’s injury.

The Black Cats manager said: “He’s gone to hospital. He’s gone in an ambulance to hospital, he was in a lot of discomfort.

“I don’t really want to comment on what we think it is. Our club doctor was here and he thought it was serious enough for him to go to hospital.

“He was in a lot of pain and hopefully whatever he needs doing, he will get looked after well. It looks like a bad injury. Let’s wait and see what the true diagnosis of that is.”

The Verdict: A blow for Sunderland

With Embleton boasting the joint-highest number of league appearances (23) to his name this season of any Sunderland player, this highlights how important the 23-year-old has been for the club.

To highlight what the midfielder has offered the Black Cats this season, only two players in Mowbray’s squad have made more key passes (16) and landed more shots on target (nine) than Embleton.

In addition, only three Sunderland players have completed more dribbles than the Englishman (13), further showcasing his attacking prowess.

Is this a blow for Sunderland?





Since the match against Hull, journalist James Hunter shared on Twitter that Embleton has reportedly broken his leg, although any official confirmation to this effect is yet to be delivered.

If that is the case, this will undeniably be a big blow for him and Sunderland, who may need to continue through the remainder of the campaign without him.
