SUNDERLAND boss Gus Poyet will make a late check on defender Wes Brown before finalising his plans for Saturday’s trip to Stoke.

The 34-year-old has played the last two and a half games after almost two years on the sidelines, and while he appears to have suffered no ill-effects, Poyet will assess him for the game at the Britannia Stadium.

Full-back Andrea Dossena and midfielder Lee Cattermole both complete three-game bans, but the manager otherwise has a full squad from which to choose.

Team from: Westwood, Mannone, Celustka, Bardsley, Cuellar, O’Shea, Brown, Diakite, Roberge, Colback, Cabral, Gardner, Ki, Giaccherini, Johnson, Larsson, Ba, Karlsson, Mavrias, Fletcher, Altidore, Borini, Ji.
