… Strikes three times in two games

Sunderland manager, Steve Bruce, believes Asamoah Gyan is ready to start scoring even more regularly, after the Ghanaian rescued a point for the Black Cats against Tottenham on Tuesday.
Gyan scored his third goal in two matches to clinch a 1-1 draw in the Premier League.
Rafael van der Vaart had put Spurs ahead three minutes before Gyan struck in the 67th-minute.
“Physically, when he [Gyan] came to us, he was nowhere near in condition,” Sunderland manager Steve Bruce said.
“Thankfully, in the last five or six weeks, we’ve be able to put a bit of work into him.”
Gyan’s fine form has given Bruce much hope, as he is relishing Darren Bent’s return, as he can finally link up with the Ghanaian. “That’s why we were pursuing him [Gyan] as much as we could,” he said.
“He might frustrate us with little flicks here, there and everywhere, especially, in the last minute, but he’s always got a goal in him. “He’s always a threat, as we’ve seen with Benty, and when we’ve got the two of them together, they should be a decent partnership.”
