Campbell: A Point Better Than Nothing

10 December 2016

Fraizer Campbell admitted that he and his teammates were disappointed not to take the three points from Hull City, but conceded that a point was better than nothing at all.

The Eagles found life difficult at the KCOM Stadium, falling behind to a Robert Snodgrass penalty after the Tigers' number 10 went to ground without contact from Scott Dann, before pulling back into the game from the spot after the break.

Christian Benteke's penalty, a Goal of the Season contender from the electric Wilfried Zaha and a late equaliser from ex-Hull boy Campbell saw Palace draw 3-3 on Humberside.

"For the neutral it's probably great to watch, but not for ourselves," Campbell said after the game. "We'd like to keep clean sheets. We're scoring freely and if we can keep a few more clean sheets we'll win more games.

"In the past we've always prided ourselves on being hard to beat, but we've fallen away from that a little bit. We got a great result last week [against Southampton] and it was important not to get beaten today, so we could have something to build on and gain momentum from. 

"We're disappointed not to come away with the three points, but at the end of the day this is better than nothing," the striker added.

Campbell was given a hard time whilst warming up in front of the Hull supporters and that continued once he entered the fray. But despite the hostile atmosphere, the Palace man insisted his only motivation was providing for his team,

"What spurs me on is my team," he said. "People are entitled to their own opinions but I've got fond memories of my time at Hull City. That won't affect me."
