Westwood a doubt for Sunderland

Sunderland’s Keiren Westwood is a doubt for his side’s next match against Fulham at Craven Cottage after the Republic of Ireland international withdrew from the international squad with a thigh injury.

Westwood has returned to the Stadium of Light for further assessment of the injury and treatment and it is not known at this stage of the injury will mean that he will be absent for the weekend’s game in the Barclay’s Premier League.

Westwood, who is under contract with Sunderland until 2014, has only made a handful of appearances this season for the Black Cats in the League Cup, but the goalkeeper is first choice for the Republic of Ireland national side despite being Sunderland’s number two.
