Sunderland's Richardson on way back

Sunderland boss Roy Keane has revealed midfielder Kieran Richardson is on his way back.

Richardson could return to the Sunderland first team at Christmas having been sidelined since August with a back injury.

Keane told the club's official website: "Kieran's doing a lot of stuff in the gym and we hope to have him back in first-team contention in two or three weeks.

"And let's not forget Russell, he's doing a bit of running and is about a week behind Kieran."
