DJ: I’m the man to res­cue Rangers

Midweek Sport - - NEWS - By IAN WIN­ROW

DJ CAMP­BELL in­sists he can fill the gap left by Djib­ril Cisse’s ex­tended ban and fire QPR to safety.

Camp­bell has been out for over two months with a ham­string prob­lem but is eye­ing a re­turn against Manch­ester United on Sun­day.

The striker has scored only one league goal since his sum­mer move from Black­pool.

But he is con­vinced he can come good in the final weeks of Rangers’ sur­vival bat­tle.

And with Cisse hav­ing sat out just one game of his four-match ban fol­low­ing his send­ing-off at Sun­der­land, Camp­bell is press­ing for a start along­side Bobby Zamora.

Camp­bell said: “It’s not quite worked out for me this sea­son with in­juries but I scored a lot of goals last year, so why not?

Im­pact

“It’s what I get paid to do and that’s what I hope­fully can do when I come back.

“I feel I can make an im­pact straight away. I be­lieve we can do it. If I can score the goals to help us do so, then my job’s done.”

Zamora be­lieves QPR’S home form will prove vi­tal in the rel­e­ga­tion bat­tle, with the side on a high at Lof­tus Road fol­low­ing wins over Arse­nal and Liver­pool.

The Eng­land striker – who faced the Gun­ners af­ter suf­fer­ing a sleep­less night with a stom­ach up­set – said: “All the home games I’ve played in since I’ve been here have been very close.

“At home we’re a lot stronger than per­haps we are away.

“We’ve got tough home games, but they’re winnable. Af­ter a per­for­mance like the one we pro­duced against Arse­nal, we can beat any­one here.”

RE­TURN: Camp­bell
