Richardson set for recall

Kieran Richardson is set to return to Sunderland’s side against Hull tomorrow after recovering from a calf injury.

Dean Whitehead (calf) is also fit after missing last weekend’s game against Manchester United, but might have to settle for a place on the bench.

Steed Malbranque, who was rested against the champions, is pushing for a return. George McCartney and David Healy remain sidelined while Andy Reid has recovered from a knock and is available.

Team (from): Gordon, Fulop, Bardsley, Davenport, Ferdinand, Nosworthy, Ben-Haim, Collins, McShane, Tainio, Whitehead, Edwards, Malbranque, Richardson, Leadbitter, Reid, Yorke, Colback, Cisse, Murphy, Jones.
