Team news: Cattermole returns following Di Canio exit
KEVIN BALL has included former skipper Lee Cattermole in the Sunderland starting line-up for the first game since Paolo Di Canio's sacking.
Cattermole was back involved again as a substitute for Di Canio's final game in charge at West Brom on Saturday, when a 3-0 defeat brought an end to his six month reign.
And Cattermole, part of the dressing room rebellion which called for a change of boss on Sunday, has been reinstated to the centre of the Black Cats midfield for tonight's Capital One Cup tie with Peterborough United.
Ball has been handed caretaker charge of first team affairs and, pre-match, there is said to be a much happier and relaxed moodd within the squad before the match kicks-off.
SUNDERLAND (4-2-3-1): Westwood; Gardner, O'Shea, Cuellar, Colback; Larsson, Cattermole; Johnson, Ki, Giaccherini; Altidore. Subs (not used): Cabral, Wickham, Ba, Mannone (gk), Roberge, Borini, Mavrias.
PETERBOROUGH UNITED (4-4-2): Olejnik; Alcock, Ntlhe, Bostwick, Zakuani; Rowe, Payne, Swanson; Barnett, Tomlin. Subs (not used): Day (gk), Brisley, Newell, Mendez-Laing, Gordon, McCann, Ferdinand.
