Sunderland are set to find out the seriousness of Fraizer Campbell’s injury after the 25-year-old hobbled off in stoppage time against West Ham.
The ex Manchester United forward is unlikely to feature in tomorrow’s Capital One Cup tie against MK Dons after having to be replaced by David Meyler at Upton Park.
Martin O’Neill revealed to the Sunderland Echo, “I think Fraizer might be going for some x-rays because there was a stamp on his foot and it was very sore.
“I was hoping he would come off a bit quicker than he did, because I had the feeling, that the referee would add about half an hour and I didn’t want to give him the chance to do so. As much as Fraizer is my player, when he came off it wasn’t my first concern to find out how he was – it was the next ball into the penalty area that was worrying me.”
Campbell’s injury came just 20 minutes after he was brought on to replace Stephane Sessegnon. The Wearsiders are currently missing Wes Brown, Carlos Cuellar and Phil Bardsley due to injury.
