Moyes stated this while speaking to Sunderland Echo. In his words, he said: “We hope that Victor could be back and maybe Catts (Lee Cattermole),”
“I think Catts could get some training in but the one we’re really looking to see if we can get back is Victor. There are no guarantees but I know Victor’s doing a bit more running and hopefully getting closer,” he said.
Speaking further, Moyes disclosed that the target is to get both payers fit for their next game. He said: “My bigger worry is how they can get a level of match fitness to make a difference and help us in such a short time.”
“I have to hope that we can get them back and give ourselves another dimension, even if it’s getting them back off the bench late on. I’ll probably play one (a friendly) this week because we have three games in a week coming up and we’ll need the squad of players we’ve got,” he further stated.
