Sunderland manager Chris Coleman has revealed that on loan Crystal Palace midfielder Jonny Williams’ has not seen a fresh run of luck this year as he’s once again suffered an injury.

The Welsh international was forced off in the 30th minute in last weekend’s clash with Queens Park Rangers and he was of course working his way back from the previous injury that kept him sidelined.

Having now been assessed by club staff, the 23 year old now faces a further month on the sidelines following his collision in the game and it is only a month after he returned from his three month lay off with a shoulder injury.

Speaking to the Official Site as he met with the media this week Coleman described it as another major blow for the club, but unfortunately it’s been a season of ‘blows’ for both the club and the player himself.

‘Jonny will be out for a month. It is a grade two tear in his quad. That`s disappointing because it has been a tough season for Jonny, very stop-start. I can`t get him fit and keep him fit and that`s a shame because he is such a good player and in full flow as a Sunderland player the supporters would love him. We haven`t managed to see that because unfortunately he has had bad luck.’

In terms of other news on the injury front for the club going into this weekend’s tie against Preston North End, Coleman went on to talk about Darron Gibson who remains a couple of weeks away from contention, despite now returning partly to training.

‘Darron Gibson trained today in part of the session but he will be a few weeks away. Even before you can play in a behind closed door game or an under-23s game. He is doing well, he has had no setbacks so far.’
