Campbell set for second operation

20 April 2011 10:00

Sunderland striker Fraizer Campbell is to undergo knee surgery on Wednesday which will rule him out for the bulk of next season.

The Black Cats have confirmed that the 23-year-old, who has missed all but four games of the current season with cruciate ligament damage, needs a second operation.

Manager Steve Bruce revealed his fears over Campbell last week, and they have now been realised, and with loan signing Danny Welbeck struggling with a hamstring problem, he faces heading into Saturday's crucial Barclays Premier League clash with Wigan with only one fit senior striker.
