Campbell Relishing Games As Tigers Prepare To Face Wolves

15 August 2017
Fraizer Campbell says he is loving life back in East Yorkshire and he can't wait to be back in action tonight when the Tigers host Wolverhampton Wanderers (KO 7.45pm).

Campbell is back in a black and amber shirt nine years after a loan spell from Manchester United came to an end and, having helped his side to four points from their first two games of the season, the games can’t come quickly enough for the striker.

“It has been really easy for me to settle back in here,” said Campbell.

“We have a great set of lads here and the staff have been brilliant. The fans have been brilliant with me as well and it has been a decent start to the season on the field. We’re unbeaten so far – a draw against a side considered to be amongst the favourites for promotion and then a comfortable win on Saturday against Burton.

“It’s been a good start, but we’re still building and probably still not fully there in terms of match sharpness, but we’re going about things in the right way.

“For me, playing the full 90 minutes at the weekend was very important. I missed the first couple of weeks of pre-season, so I need to catch up as quickly as possible and the weekend has brought me that bit closer to the rest.

“It’s also great to be back playing in a stadium where I’ve scored goals in the past, but all I really want to do is make sure that I score plenty more at the KCOM Stadium this season.”

If Campbell is to score tonight, he and his team-mates will have to break down a Wolves defence that is yet to concede a goal this season. Clean sheets in Championship wins against Middlesbrough and Derby County, and a shut-out in a League Cup victory over Yeovil, have seen Nuno Espirito Santo’s side make an impressive start to the new campaign and Campbell is expecting a tough assignment.

“I’m looking forward to every game and tonight we’re playing another side that has been tipped to do very well this season,” added Campbell.

“We’ll be looking to go out to enjoy the game and hopefully continue our form. I’m sure Wolves will be full of confidence, but so are we because we have played well overall.

“We want to make the KCOM a bit of a fortress and make other sides worried about coming here.”
