Campbell edges closer to fitness

Last updated : 10 January 2002 By Austin Rathe
Campbell has missed the last 12 games with a trapped nerve in his back, but should return soon. Howevere he won't be in contention for Saturday's game against Sunderland. Everton will also be missing several other key players. Thomas Gravesen, Mark Pembridge and Alessandro Pistone are all unavailable with ankle, calf and knee problems respectively, and Steve Watson is also struggling to overcome the ankle injury he picked up at the Riverside - he too is unlikely to figure on Saturday.

Thomas Radzinski will not be fit, meaning that Everton will continue with the striking partnership of Ferguson and Moore.
