Campbell strike rescues Black Cats
Fraizer Campbell grabbed a late equaliser for Sunderland as they drew 1-1 with Brighton in a pre-season friendly in the Algarve on Wednesday. Glenn Murray had been the central figure as Albion dominated the first half, seeing an 11th-minute header controversially disallowed, curling a good effort over and failing to convert Elliott Bennett's cross with the goal gaping before he finally broke the deadlock from the penalty spot after Boudewijn Zenden handled just before the break. Young keeper Trevor Carson had to make a superb save from Murray after Matt Kilgallon's error and the Black Cats then had George McCartney stretchered off, but Campbell provided a silver lining when he stretched to turn in Jordan Henderson's excellent free-kick.
