Off the mark

27 August 2016

Notts County's Adam Campbell was delighted to score his first goal of the season in the 3-1 win at Crawley Town.

The forward curled the ball home beautifully to put Notts ahead after they had equalised courtesy of an own goal.

And Campbell was thrilled to be off the mark early in the campaign.

He said: "It was well-documented last year that it took me a fair few games to get one, so hopefully it's a sign of good things to come!

"I'll take anything - a two-yarder or a 20-yarder - but it was nice. The angle opened up - Michael O'Connor sold the defender a good one and it gave me plenty of time and space on the ball. Thankfully I found the corner.

"I recently asked the manager why I wasn't playing and what I had to do to get in the team - and he told me brutally honestly!

"I'm doing what I can on the pitch and hopefully it's good enough to stay in the team."

Notts now go into three consecutive home games and Campbell says confidence is high in the camp.

He said: "I know the first couple of games didn't go according to plan but I think we're finding a rhythm now and we're looking pretty solid.

"We're looking a threat going forward. Jon Stead can't stop scoring at the moment so that's a great sign for everyone and brilliant for him.

"We're really looking to kick on from now."

Campbell's interview will be available to watch on Magpie Player HD later.
