Cole set for Sunderland debut in derby

Andy Cole is in line to make his debut for Sunderland against former club Newcastle United this weekend.

Cole has not been seen in action since limping out of a reserve game against Everton with a calf strain in September, but returned for the 8-0 thrashing of Wolviston at Eppleton CW's County Durham home in the 'Newton Moor Durham County Challenge Cup'.

He now hopes to finally make his first-team debut at the Stadium of Light on Saturday lunchtime when Sunderland entertain his old friends from Newcastle, but may have to at least begin on the substitutes bench.
