Dick Advocaat hopes Sunderland will have Wes Brown back before the end of the Premier League season after receiving positive news on his knee injury.

Brown limped off early in Sunderland’s 1-0 defeat to West Ham on March 21, with initial tests indicating that the defender could be out for the rest of the campaign.

However, Advocaat feels the former Manchester United man could be fit for the final weeks of the season.

“It looks better than we thought before,” the Dutchman told Sunderland’s official website. “It will still be difficult to bring him back this season, so hopefully at the end but the doctor said it takes four or five weeks.”

Brown will miss Sunday’s Tyne-Wear derby, but Lee Cattermole is available again to Advocaat following his two-game suspension.

“You need him [Cattermole] always because he is a controller on the pitch and he is a quick passer,” Advocaat added.

“The team missed him for 10-12 games I believe so it is good that he’s back.”
