Wickham determined to grab fresh Sunderland chance

Connor Wickham is happy to grab his second chance at Sunderland.

An Achilles injury to Steven Fletcher earned the England Under-21 regular a reprieve which he is determined to make the most of.

"I've got nothing to lose," he told The Journal. "I've not been playing (for Sunderland), so whatever time I get on the pitch I've just got to do what I'm told to do the best I can. That's what I tried to do on Saturday.

"I'm back from my loan and I've been involved a couple of times so whatever minutes I get on the pitch are about proving to the manager that I should be on from the start."
