Sunderland duo to appear in court

Sunderland pair Nicklas Bendtner and Lee Cattermole will face magistrates later this month, after being accused of vandalising cars in Newcastle city centre.

The pair were apprehended by Northumbria Police, with damage to vehicles in Stowell Street in Newcastle’s China Town, which is a well known area for Newcastle fans to visit before the Tyneside club’s games.

The reported incident happened at 10pm on December 6th, two days after The Black Cats were beaten 2-1 by Wolves.

The maximum sentence for this offence according to The Daily Telegraph is three months imprisonment and a fine of £2,500, but a warning is more likely in this case.

Both players have not played a part in the club’s revival under Martin O’Neill due to injury.

Meanwhile, Bantams midfielder Jack Colback is looking forward to facing Arsenal on Saturday, as Sunderland and The Gunners will meet twice in quick succession; once in the Premier League and once in the FA Cup fifth round.

“It’s a good opportunity for us. They come up to our place twice and I am sure they will be fearing us as much as we fear them.

“It should be a good game, the one on Saturday, and hopefully we can keep on winning.

“We know what to expect from them. They pass it well and we like to do the same,” he stated.
