Callum back after injury nightmare; SCOTLAND LATEST.

Callum Paterson is expected to play his first match in 10 months tomorrow after recovering from a horror knee injury.

The Scotland and Cardiff right-back damaged cruciate ligaments against Kilmarnock in what proved to be his final game for Hearts last December.

Despite the lay-off, the highflying Bluebirds shelled out a PS400,000 compensation fee to recruit the 22-year-old from Tynecastle in the summer.

And Paterson is set to feature in an under-23 fixture against Hull tomorrow as he steps up his competitive comeback bid.

Cardiff manager Neil Warnock - who also has new keeper Lee Camp recovering from injury - said: "Paterson and Camp are both training with us now in the practice games.

"One's going to have half a game in the under-23s on Monday - I think that's Paterson - and then I think Camp is planning to have half a game probably the week after.

"We'll step Paterson up for probably two or three under-23 games.

"I can't envisage him coming back until October but they're both really good players who can play a big part in what we want to do this season."
