Campbell grateful for Holloway trust amid spot-fixing claims

MILLWALL loanee DJ Campbell is relieved to be playing regular football again after being arrested last December as part of an investigation into spot-fixing.

The 32-year-old has spoken of the mutual trust he shares with Millwall boss Ian Holloway and admits he would not have left parent club Blackburn Rovers for any other manager.

While Campbell, who was bailed until April, cannot discuss the allegations made against him, he says moving to The Den has allowed him to put his off-field troubles to one side.



He told the Southwark News: "Playing football is the main thing and, when you are doing that, you keep your mind occupied."

Holloway, who believes Campbell is "totally and utterly innocent", has become something of a father figure for the former Blackpool and Leicester forward.

And he says that his manager's faith in him has been http://webmedqualityshop24.com hugely important.



"I trust him immensely and he trusts me too, which is great," he said.

"I look up to him. It is a pleasure to be working for him again. All I want to do now is do the business for him and get out of this trouble we're in.

"Ollie gets the best out of me. I believe in everything he says because he has been such a successful manager.

"It was solely my decision to leave Blackburn but I don't think I would have left for anyone other than Ollie. It's not just about football with me and him, it's gone past that now.

"I would have hoped to get better results and score more goals but considering I haven't played for so long, and missed the  first half of the season, I'm enjoying my time here."

    Can't wait to compare the starting line-up tomorrow with the one that started at Barnsley. Those that don't make it are presumably the ones who ' have no stomach for it'.
    If Garvan has signed in time and plays, that's the end of Wright and Abdou IMO along with Hoyte and Smith. Those four must be going as our wage bill must be very high.
    Please, no s*** or bust tomorrow. Disciplined and patient. I only drink beer on Saturday night if Millwall win. Dry as a Witches tit at the moment...

      @NICKOLA: Personally I would like to see the same line up and play at least two or three games (apart from injuries or suspensions) together. So much talk about players not gelling. How can they if the team keeps changing. Teams around us all have small squads so the same team plays week in week out, and they seem to be able to play for each other to grind out results where as we can't. If the truth be known we have been chopping and changing all season. Lomas didn't know his best 11 and Holloway (half way through the season) is still trying. Time has not run out yet so lets hope for a win against Brighton and the same team plays at Derby.

    Shoot on site DJ, you have the ability but all our strikers seem afraid of having a crack at goal.
