Campbell an instant hit with Mackay

Next Story

Cardiff boss Malky Mackay hailed debutant Fraizer Campbell after the striker scored two minutes after stepping off the substitutes' bench to secure a 1-0 win at Leeds.

The table-topping Bluebirds were second-best until Mackay introduced his £650,000 buy from Sunderland in an inspired 62nd-minute substitution. Young Leeds defender Sam Byram's careless clearance ran to Craig Bellamy whose low shot was expertly turned past Paddy Kenny by Campbell, who was immediately buried by his overjoyed new team-mates.

"I am delighted for Fraizer. He is very humble and has rapidly bought into our team ethic," Mackay said. "He is a willing runner and an intelligent footballer who knows where the goal is. He has not played a lot of football lately so the mind was willing and the flesh was weak, but he will soon be up to speed."
