Campbell set for second operation

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.
