'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Cattermole Closing In On Return

Cattermole has had a poor season in terms of games under his belt. Catts, 22, has had back problems since December and medics have feared it could lead to long term problems.

However, in true Cattermole fighting style, he has overcame this problem and Bruce looks to edge him in slowly with some practice football.

Bruce said: 'We are going to have a practice game in training on Saturday involving most of the squad and that will give some of the returning players chance to get a little match fitness.

'Lee is working with a personal fitness trainer at the moment but he will play in the game this weekend and if he comes through that okay we will look at involving him in the reserves against Manchester United.

'He has a chance of being in the squad for the Liverpool game but then there is a fortnight before we play Manchester City and we will hope to get another couple of games into him in that time so he will be ready to face City.'

With Welbeck, Campbell and now Lee Cattermole getting minutes under their belts we should have a strong finish to an already great season.
