Campbell: It's All About Momentum

1 October 2015

Fraizer Campbell believes the side can build on the victory last weekend against Watford going into the final game before the international break on Saturday lunchtime. 

"It was a vital result as we had lost the previous two league games so everyone was keen to go to Watford, a side in good form, and get the win and fortunately that is what we were able to do. 

"There is a great feeling amongst the squad and we take the games as they come along, with our record so far we have something to build on. Since the gaffer came in at the start of the year we have been a completely different team and at the back end of last season we showed we can get the ball down and play some good football. Results improved massively and we have taken that into this season. It is about keeping some consistency and not getting too caught up in where we are in the league table but taking it step by step and hopefully go on and do really well this season."

Tony Pulis makes a return to Selhurst Park this weekend with the visit of West Bromwich Albion but the striker believes it is important the home side take the current feel good factor around the club into the game. 

"Everyone knows what a good manager he is and what to expect from them as a side but from our point of view we are looking to improve our home form which has not been as good as our away form but we have won our last game and hopefully it is about momentum. It is important we take the good feeling into this weekend's game and come Saturday afternoon have three more points."

As with any good league position comes expectancy for the team and The Eagles fans are delighted to be going into games with that confidence, Fraizer hopes the good start to the campaign continues and brings with it a good level of confidence and continued ambitions.  

"As we are a club who want to move forward after doing well in the early games this season you have to learn how to deal with the expectation. You have to be ready with a variety of tactics depending on the team you are playing and we are always well prepared to do go into games and ready to develop ways of exposing the opposition to find a weakness that is going to get us the break in matches. We have a good confidence on the ball and like to pass the ball, as a squad we play some good football and it's important you turn that into results and have confidence in ourselves to keep moving forward and improving."
