The Black Cats will be looking to bounce back from their Wembley disappointment when they visit the Wham Stadium on Wednesday (7:45pm kick-off), with Ross hinting at some changes from the side that lost out on penalties to Portsmouth. Scroll down and click through the pages to see everything the Sunderland chief has to say ahead of the trip to Stanley - including news of an injury setback:

"Theyve been really good since. The good thing for us is weve got a lot to focus on and regardless of how Sunday panned out, we recognised the importance of tomorrow evening and Saturday too.
"Lee has been okay. His disappointed was similar to the others because they all put so much into it. To lose it in that manner is painful and is sore."
"Adam Matthews remains out and obviously didn't make Sunday. He actually had a recurrence of his hamstring injury on Friday. We actually thought he was going to be fit for Sunday but then had a recurrence in training."
"We have doubts over a few more, but we'll allow ourselves another 24 hours to assess them. There will be some enforced changes in that regard and some others we maybe look at."

"We have doubts over a few more, but we'll allow ourselves another 24 hours to assess them. There will be some enforced changes in that regard and some others we maybe look at."
"Hes getting closer. He actually made really good process quite quickly. Such is the process these days, players can recover an awful lot quicker than they used to do."
"He tried to push for the final, but we quickly discovered he was nowhere near that. It was then a case of targeting league games and if things continue as they are at the moment he could be back for the Coventry game."
"I didnt expect anything different from him. Hes been a huge bonus for me this season and his form early in the season when he got into the team was really good and he was unfortunate he got injured."
The lads are pleased they have another game tomorrow evening because thats the best way to get the disappointment out of their system. So the focus and the aim is to win."
