Sunderland’s problems continue to mount after top scorer Lewis Grabban was taken off with a hamstring injury in last night’s last-gasp defeat to Nottingham Forest.
Grabban was replaced in the 37th minute after tweaking his hamstring while attempting to shoot at goal.
Boss Simon Grayson is sweating on the results of tests to see how severe the hamstring injury is, with Sunderland chronically shy of attacking options.
Sunderland failed to land another striker on deadline day and the free agent market remains an option in between transfer windows.
Grayson said: “It looks like Lewis tweaked his hamstring. We will see the severity of it this morning. Of course it would be a blow because he is a good player, we are a little bit short in those numbers.
