FORMER Sunderland striker Fraizer Campbell is hoping to make an appearance in tomorrow’s match against Brighton after his double saw Cardiff beat Bristol City 2-1 on Saturday.

Cardiff’s relentless push for automatic promotion saw them seal their third win in four games at the City Stadium, as Campbell made it three goals from three appearances.

The 25-year-old now wants to continue by starting against Gus Poyet’s Brighton, who drew 1-1 against Blackburn in their last league game.

“I hope there is more to come as I’ve not played much football the last year or so. It’s going to take me a while to get up to speed with the rest of the players,” he said.

“Hopefully a few more games will do me good. I’ve been playing for as much time as I can in every game. I’m trying to get as fit as possible.

“This is a massive chance for me in a team that is playing really well. I’ve not played football for the last couple of years so it’s important for me to get myself back on track and hopefully I can do that at Cardiff.”

In the other games, promotion-hunting Crystal Palace will look to back up their 4-1 win over Middlesbrough at home to Bristol City, while Boro travel to Burnley, Barnsley take on Wolves in a relegation scrap and Birmingham are at home to Sheffield Wednesday.

Derby take on Bolton, Ipswich face Watford, Millwall return from FA Cup success over Luton to play Peterborough and Nottingham Forest are at home to Huddersfield, who were knocked out of the cup by Wigan yesterday.

Leeds will look to bounce back from their FA Cup fifth round 4-0 defeat by league champions Manchester City at home to Blackpool on Wednesday.
