Missing from the squad that travels to London for the FA Cup 4th round replay with Fulham will be Adam Johnson who has just undergone thumb surgery.

The 27-year-old midfielder has had to have minor surgery on his thumb and while he will take no part in tonight’s game, he won’t be missing from the squad for too long.

Speaking to the Sunderland Echo, Johnson said: ‘I just have to get it done. It’s not a serious thing, but I need the wound to heal. It’s the risk of infection that’s keeping me out. It’s the best time to do it with the games coming up, though.

‘I love playing at Craven Cottage so I’m disappointed to miss it, but I have to have it done, so hopefully the lads can get through without me.’

  • If he stopped sucking it when, from time to time, he goes to sleep in games he might not have a problem. The man is a game changer but either lacks stamina, or aggression.
