Rose ineligible, O'Shea in contention for Spurs game

Sunderland manager Martin O’Neill will be without full-back Danny Rose for tomorrow’s Barclays Premier League clash with Tottenham.

The defender is unavailable under the terms of his loan agreement with parent club Spurs, although John O’Shea could return to the back four after missing the St Stephen's Day victory over Manchester City through illness.

O’Neill has recalled midfielder David Meyler from his loan spell at Hull after he completed a one-match ban, but will look at how his squad has recovered following the City game before naming his team.

Provisional squad: Mignolet, Westwood, Bardsley, Kilgallon, O’Shea, Cuellar, Bramble, Gardner, Colback, McClean, Larsson, Johnson, Vaughan, Sessegnon, Meyler, Saha, Campbell, Wickham, McFadden, Fletcher.
