Football - Borini back for Black Cats

Striker Fabio Borini returns to the Sunderland squad for Saturday evening's Barclays Premier League clash with Manchester United.

PA Sport Report

The 22-year-old was ineligible for Sunday's 3-1 home defeat by parent club Liverpool under the terms of his loan agreement, but will hand interim head coach Kevin Ball a fresh option for the United game.

Ball has no new injury worries with striker Steven Fletcher continuing his recovery from a dislocated shoulder, while defenders Wes Brown (calf) and Andrea Dossena (thigh) work their way back to full fitness.
