Sunderland manager Jack Ross confirmed this afternoon the rumour that had been circulated on social media regarding Chris Maguire’s injury status, and that the attacker has broken a bone in his leg which will keep him out for up to two months.

It’s a huge blow, particularly as he had just won his place back in the side, and now its up to Lynden Gooch, Duncan Watmore and Lewis Morgan to step up in his place.

Maguire will miss a lot of games, including potentially a EFL Trophy cup final should we win at Bristol Rovers in the semi final of the competition.

Maguire has been told by doctors that he will wear a protective boot for six weeks before he undergoes rehab.
