O'Neill hails Campbell

Published Add your comment

Sunderland manager Martin O'Neill saluted the spirit of comeback king Fraizer Campbell after seeing him keep the club's FA Cup dreams alive.

The 24-year-old returned from 17 months of misery after two cruciate ligament injuries to claim a second-half equaliser which denied derby rivals Middlesbrough a giant-killing victory at the Stadium of Light.

Campbell, who was introduced as a half-time substitute, expertly converted James McClean's 59th-minute cross to announce his re-emergence in style. O'Neill said: "Dave Galley, our physiotherapist, tells me - and Dave has been in the business a fairly lengthy time - that he may well be the best of the lot in terms of never being down."
