Sunderland boss Bruce holding back Wickham

Sunderland boss Steve Bruce says he isn't ready to start Connor Wickham in the Premier League.

The former Ipswich Town striker is having to bide his time on Sunderland's bench.

"I knew at the time he was a lot of money but he's only 18, so we have to be a little bit wary," said Bruce.

"When he's right, he'll certainly be a big, big force. But I think it's important we give him a little bit of time."
