Bruce laments Gordon setback


Sunderland manager Steve Bruce has spoken of his devastation at losing goalkeeper Craig Gordon to a broken arm for the second time.

The Scotland international will miss the start of the new campaign after suffering a fresh break to the same arm he injured in a Premier League game in December last year which kept him sidelined for two months.

Gordon's latest setback came during a session at the club's pre-season training camp in Portugal.

"It was devastating – a complete freak accident," Bruce told the club's official website.

"It happened just when we had Craig at the top of his game and he will be a big miss for us.

"It's a big blow, but we will have to get over it. Every club has its knocks over the season.

"Craig needs a bit of luck and we wish him well."
