Sunderland comeback keeper Gordon now diving

Sunderland goalkeeper Craig Gordon has stepped up his recovery from a fractured arm.

Gordon has started diving again in training as he edges closer to a Sunderland return.

The Scottish international, 27, stepped up his preparations yesterday by doing some light handling work, including diving.

Reflecting on the session with safc.com, he said: "Yesterday was the first time I was allowed to dive again; hitting the ground again is a big progression for me.

"The crash mats will be out for the first few days and then after that I'll be getting used to hitting the floor again.

"It's a big step forward as I'm getting my body used to things again."
