The former Manchester United striker is one of several first-team players on the injured list at the Stadium of Light this season, with
and Anton Ferdinand among those sidelined.
"I'm fed up of talking about injuries, we'll pick what we want to pick, and I'll pick from who I think is the fittest out of what we've got, because I seem like a long playing record," Bruce continued.
"We've been badly disrupted about it, and it's no better this week, I can't tell you who's fit right now, but we'll know more tomorrow.
"Are we unlucky? Certainly with Fraizer Campbell, he's twisted his knee and ruptured his cruciate ligament, Michael Turner crashes against a post, nothing we can do about that.
"We've still got 11 players who need to produce a performance on Saturday [against Birmingham] and let's hope we can do that."
