Sunderland boss Poyet explains recalling Wickham from Leeds

Sunderland boss Gus Poyet explained recalling Connor Wickham from his loan at Leeds United.

Poyet has hinted strongly that the 20-year-old will play at Liverpool tonight.

"We've been trying different things, different situations," he said. "Fabio is not available tomorrow, so I'm going to keep trying different things. Connor is an option.

"I can't keep closing my eyes, keep picking the team until the end of the season and think why didn't I try that.

"It's my job to keep searching for the solution and then you know you've done everything."
