Trevor Carson Recalled From Loan At Lincoln City

Sunderland 'keeper Trevor Carson has been recalled from loan at Lincoln City, after Sunderland activated a clause in the youngster's agreement.

Lincoln City manager Steve Tilson confirmed the news today, telling The Imps' official website "With there being a 24-hour recall in Trevor's contract, Sunderland were fully within their rights to take him back, although it does put us in a difficult position as we've only got until 5pm tomorrow night to bring someone else in"

Tilson however expressed his thanks to Sunderland for loaning the Northern Irishman who played in 16 games for the club, conceding 26 goals - "But I would like to thank Sunderland for allowing Trevor to come to us and play some competitive football. He's a great lad and on behalf of everyone here at Lincoln City I would like to wish him every success for the future."

What does this mean in the bigger picture though? My immediate thoughts are that Trevor has been recalled in case Craig Gordon injures himself further whilst training with Scotland for the friendly international with Brazil on Sunday at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium.

Lets hope that it is just cover for now, and Craig hasn't already done himself further damage.

For those who prefer spurious rumors, allegedly Craig Gordon has had a bit of a bust-up with Steve Bruce about the afore mentioned Brazil game, as the Scot is determined to play a part, while Brucey believes, as do I, he should be resting.

UPDATE: Carson, having only been back on Wearside a day, has been sent away to League One side Brentford for a month.
