The 25-year-old struck the only goal against Leeds two minutes after his introduction to restore Cardiff's 10-point lead at the top of the npower Championship.

And Campbell, whose three-and-a-half-year stay at Sunderland was severely disrupted by a serious knee injury, is delighted to be back and scoring goals.

"Being injured for such a long period put me back a couple of years," he said. "But now I am as sharp as ever, as fit as ever, and want to push on in the next couple of months.

"It's the best I've felt in a long time, when you first come back you get aches and pains in your calf because it's not been used to running about.

"But it's been brilliant for the last few months and I'm ready to play and score goals.

"There were times when it crossed my mind whether I would play again, you do get down days."

Campbell returns to his native Huddersfield on Saturday as Cardiff look for yet another victory.

h ha ha, excellent. Let's hope he goes on the run. Then they hunt piggy down for scoffing all the apples. At least he's done something right - he has united football fans, regardless of who they support, against FIFA and all those at the top who have been bleeding the game for their own means and giving nothing back.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.
