Sunderland: James Copley bemoans Ellis Simms injury

Sunderland: James Copley bemoans Ellis Simms injury -Sunderland News

Sunderland journalist James Copley was left bemoaning the injury picked up by Ellis Simms in the 3-0 win at Reading in the Championship on Wednesday.

The Lowdown: Comfortable win

It was a comfortable win in the end for the Stadium of Light outfit, despite Simms having to go off with an injury in the first half.

A Patrick Roberts brace and a Jack Clarke goal were enough to give Tony Mowbray’s team all three points, but there will now be some concern over Simms’ fitness as they head to Watford over the weekend.

The Latest: Copley reacts

Taking to Twitter during the game, Copley bemoaned the injury picked up by injury, calling it a ‘massive blow if it is serious’.

And speaking to the media post-match, Mowbray admitted that he does not know if Simms needs a scan, adding that the Wearside club need to assess the extent of his injury.

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

The Verdict: Worrying

The fact that Simms had to go off in the first half, and that he may need a scan, is certainly worrying for Mowbray and his team.

Should Sunderland start Simms?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The Black Cats already have enough injury concerns already, including fellow striker Ross Stewart, and so a long-term injury for Simms would leave them very light up top.

They managed to make-do without a natural number nine when Simms came off against Reading, but eventually the goals could dry up until either him or Stewart return.
