Sunderland boss Steve Bruce says he'll see the strength of his squad this week at Tottenham.
Bruce reckons he is about to test his Sunderland squad to the max as he will be without banned Kenwyne Jones and Lorik Cana for next week's trip to Tottenham.
Bruce said: "That is the hardship we have to deal with. When you are missing Cana, Jones and Cattermole - who are a big part of our team - it's always going to be a struggle. But we just have to deal with it.
"We have no option, it's as simple as that."
