Campbell to make latest Sunderland comeback in Cup today

Sunderland striker Fraizer Campbell could see action today against FA Cup opponents Peterborough United.

Sunderland striker Fraizer Campbell could see action today against FA Cup opponents Peterborough United.

The 24-year-old striker initially ruptured his ­cruciate ligaments in ­August 2010 and suffered a reoccurrence of the injury last April l, just when it seemed he had regained full fitness, says the Sunday Mirror.

Now, once again recovered, Campbell was earmarked for a place in the squad for the stunning win over Manchester City last week, but complained of a tight hamstring in the run up to the game and was omitted.

New Stadium of Light boss Martin O’Neill has ­enjoyed a stellar return to club management, guiding the Black Cats to four wins in six games since he ­replaced Steve Bruce at the helm last month. But the Irishman will be delighted to have another attacking option at his disposal as the former England Under-21 international was not ­expected to be available for selection until later in the season.
