Sunderland's Stephane Sessegnon has paid tribute to Fraizer Campbell after his goal-scoring comeback to the side.
Campbell spent 17 months out after two knee ligament operations but scored on his long-awaited comeback in Sunday's 1-1 FA Cup fourth round draw with Middlesbrough.
The 24-year-old then repeated the feat on Wednesday with a stunner against Norwich in their 3-0 home win, which took them up to eighth spot in the Premier League.
Sessegnon is delighted to see Campbell back in business and knocking the goals in.
He said: "He's worked really hard to get back and played really well in his first match at the weekend. He has managed to recover and given his maximum for the team again last night.
"After such a long time injured, it's difficult to start coming back into games. But he's a player who loves playing and that's helped him. I'm really happy for him."
There were smiles all round the Stadium of Light, and none wider than the one on Campbell's face, when he blasted the Black Cats into a 21st-minute lead.
Full-back Russell Martin did well to prevent James McClean from collecting the ball after the winger had lifted it over him, but his intervention simply set up Campbell to take on touch before thumping a dipping volley over goalkeeper John Ruddy.
Campbell turned provider seven minutes later as he and Sessegnon carved the Canaries open before the former crossed for the latter to head home from close range.
Sessegnon added: "The first goal was quite special because there wasn't much on. Fraizer hit the ball really well.
"Then he played a big part in my goal by putting in a great cross.
"Fraizer's a player who it's really easy to play alongside. He's very quick and likes the ball at his feet rather than on his head, a bit like me.
"Also, he allows me to drop a bit deeper into the middle of the park because he likes to play on the last man. We seem to complement each other and we both scored last night, so it looks good."
Victory took Sunderland's return from new boss Martin O'Neill's nine Premier League games to date to 19 points from a possible 27.
Sessegnon said: "I hope to continue winning and continue scoring. It was a good victory because of the way we played and to score three goals as well and not concede one, it was almost the perfect match for us.
"It wasn't easy, no match in the Premier League is and we knew Norwich have done well this season. But we played well and scored some good goals.
"We got ourselves in front and we were very happy with the way we played."
