DJ: I’m the man to rescue Rangers
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?
“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.”
