Vital we didn't lose

7 November 2016

Notts County striker Adam Campbell was pleased with his contribution as the Magpies came from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 with Boreham Wood in the first round of the Emirates FA Cup.

The former Newcastle man came off the bench at half-time and scored twice for the second successive away trip to keep Notts in the competition.

He said: "I'm delighted to score but it's always about the result and thankfully we've pulled it back to 2-2 to put ourselves in the hat for the next round.

"With the result we had against Salford in the first round last year, it was vital that we didn't lose.

"I wasn't fearing the worst when we were 2-0 behind because there was always a chance for us to come back into it with the quality we have got in the squad.

"Once we scored the first goal it was only a matter of time before the second arrived."

The striker's first goal of the afternoon was a curling 25-yard effort but the second, his fifth of the season, was more of a rarity - a stooping header from Carl Dickinson's corner.

"It doesn't matter whether I'm crouching or jumping - if I'm scoring a header there are questions to be asked!" he laughed. "It's a novelty for me to score with a header, which is nice."

The draw means Notts face a replay to add to an already busy fixture schedule but Campbell is relishing the opportunity for more minutes on the field.

He said: "It's a hectic time of year but we have a lot of good players in the squad so we can afford to rest one or two here and there and still have good quality coming in.

"It will give a chance to some of the lads who haven't had as much game time as they would like."
