SUNDERLAND midfielder Seb Larsson is walking a disciplinary tightrope in this weekend’s crunch basement battle against Aston Villa.

Larsson picked up his ninth yellow card of the season in last week’s draw at Hull and is now just one booking away from a two-match ban.

Sunderland have a further four games to navigate before next month’s amnesty point for cautions, when the totting-up procedure of yellows ends.

The Black Cats, who have the worst disciplinary record in the Premier League this season, are already without Larsson’s fellow midfielder Lee Cattermole for the next two games after he was handed a 10th booking of the campaign at Hull.
