The former Manchester United forward set up the Dean Windass goal that secured Hull top-flight football for the first time two years ago at Wembley and will return to the KC Stadium on Saturday intent on ending his former club's Premier League adventure.[LNB]'It would be a very strange feeling if I scored tomorrow and that goal ended up helping to relegate Hull, when you think I was part of the team which helped them gain promotion,' Campbell said.[LNB]Sunderland sign Fraizer Campbell'I did not go there until October, but straight away I was playing and scoring goals. It was a great season and I enjoyed every minute of it.[LNB]'Achievement-wise, winning promotion with Hull was one of the best days of my life in football.[LNB]'Of course, it is risky going into the play-offs but if you win then it is the way to get promoted because it is so exciting.[LNB]'I am proud of playing my part in that and I would like to see Hull stay up because I have friends there.[LNB]'However, I am a Sunderland player now and tomorrow I will be doing everything I can to make sure we take the points we need to give us a chance of finishing in the top 10.'[LNB]Huddersfield-born Campbell was on loan at Hull from United when he helped Phil Brown's team win their play-off final against Bristol City but after a season's loan at Tottenham he rejected the chance to return there on a long-term basis in favour of joining Steve Bruce's Sunderland when he left Old Trafford.[LNB]'Manchester United told me I was free to talk to other clubs and I knew Hull were interested and they were the first to actually put a bid in for me,' the former England Under-21 international said.[LNB]'Once the news of the bid came out, everybody assumed I was on my way to Hull but that was not true. I was still talking to other clubs, and when Sunderland came in for me I wanted to come here.[LNB]'So it was not true I had agreed to join Hull and then went back on that to join Sunderland. The confusion was because Hull's bid became public and people jumped to the wrong conclusion.[LNB]'I have no regrets about coming to Sunderland I am very happy. When the chance came to join up with Steve here at Sunderland, I knew he thought highly of me and it made it an easy decision to make."[LNB]
