Moyes said: "It would be good to get Victor ready but I don't want to rush him.
“He has a slight thigh strain so we're being protective."
Shortly after the closure of the transfer window, Anichebe moved to the Stadium of Light as a free agent after he was released by West Bromwich Albion.
The big striker, whose career has been blighted by injuries, has yet to debut for ‘The Black Cats’.
