Jermain Defoe may have got his name on the score sheet a few times so far this season, but that does not give manager Dick Advocaat enough confidence to make the striker his main man.

Jermain Defoe may have got his name on the score sheet a few times so far this season, but that does not give manager Dick Advocaat enough confidence to make the striker his man to build his attack around.

The Express reports that Fabio Borini will be in the centre of a three man forward line and Defoe will remain on the left as Sunderland prepare for the visit of Defoe’s old club, Tottenham.

Striker Borini played in the middle of a behind closed doors game with Hartlepool in midweek and Advocaat is sure how he wants his front line to look as they try to put one over Spurs and attempt to lift themselves up the table.

Advocaat said to the Express: ‘As a striker, Jermain can’t do it on his own upfront. Maybe in a two but not on his own.’
