Sunderland are due to take on Doncaster Rovers on Friday, and they need to get back to winning ways.
Sunderland are set to take on Doncaster Rovers on Friday evening, in a game which looks crucial to their season.
Promotion remains in Sunderland’s hands, but Ross’s side have picked up just one point out of their last six.
The Black Cats have now been overtaken by Barnsley and caught up by Portsmouth, and although they have a game in hand, the pressure is on at the Stadium of Light.
Sunderland need to finish the season strongly, but they are currently having to deal with a great deal of injuries.
Ross’ men have a number of first-team players who are set to be ruled out over the Easter weekend.
However, Maguire is one Sunderland man who could return to action.
"Chris trained Thursday and Friday a little bit, so potentially if he can get through a week's training he might come back into contention,” Ross said.
If Maguire does return to Sunderland’s line-up it will be the first time he has featured since February.
