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.
