Reid hands Sunderland injury boost

Relegation threatened Sunderland have received a welcome injury boost concerning Andy Reid.

The 27-year-old Irishman looked to be facing at least a month on the sidelines when he damaged his hamstring during the 1-1 Barclays Premier League draw at Portsmouth on February 9.

But, assistant boss Erik Black told the club's official website: "Reidy will probably be back in another 10 or 12 days.

"He's ahead of schedule and has been working extremely hard in the gym.

"He trained a little with the players on Tuesday - he's doing well and getting him back will be a major plus for us."
