Campbell Targets “Big Three Points”

14 September 2018
Fraizer Campbell wants the Tigers to make home advantage count against Ipswich Town as they go in search of what would be a “big three points” on Saturday.

Nigel Adkins’ side are still looking for a first win of the season at the KCOM Stadium following three straight defeats at the hands of Aston Villa, Blackburn Rovers and Derby County and the striker, who celebrated his 31st birthday on Thursday, knows the importance of ending that frustrating run of results against the Tractor Boys.

“You can’t read too much into the early stages of the season, but we know we have to get that first home win,” he said.

“Every team wants to make their home ground a fortress and to start with three successive defeats at the KCOM has been frustrating, but we’re determined to put that right against Ipswich.

“We’re going into Saturday’s game in a positive frame of mind and we’re determined to come away with what would be a big three points for the team.”

The Tigers produced what was arguably their best performance of the season to-date in the 2-1 home defeat to Derby County prior to the international break and Campbell is keen to build on that display going forward as the team strives to find some consistency.

“The Championship is a very difficult league,” he added. “I don’t think anyone can guess what the results are going to be week-to-week, so it’s just about trying to find a level of consistency going forward.

“We competed against and dominated a top team in Derby, and whilst we didn’t get our rewards for that last time out, we must look to build on the positive aspects of the performance.

“We’ve been working hard on the training pitch during the international break and we’re determined to pick up some points from the coming games.”
