Campbell makes 'fantastic' recovery

Sunderland manager Steve Bruce believes Fraizer Campbell is looking "magnificent" as he closes in a return to action.

Bruce: I won't rush trio

Campbell has not played for the Black Cats since the end of August after rupturing a cruciate knee ligament, described by Bruce at the time as "a tragedy".

However, the 23-year-old striker is on the verge of a comeback, with the likelihood he will initially be given a reserve run-out.

Campbell could then figure in the Barclays Premier League clash with Liverpool on March 20 at the Stadium of Light.

"Fraizer looks magnificent," Bruce said in The Northern Echo. "I have never seen anybody recover from a knee injury as quickly, and when you look at the knee scar, the shape he is in and the condition he is in, it is absolutely fantastic.

"We expect him to play in a week."
