Hull City striker Frazier Campbell has told the club website he hopes that the hard work put in off the field will pay off this weekend as the Tigers welcome fellow strugglers Ipswich Town to the KCom Stadium.
The two sides have picked up just seven points between themselves from their opening six games of the season and sit 21st and 23rd in the Championship table respectively heading into Saturday’s crucial fixture.
“You can’t read too much into the early stages of the season, but we know we have to get that first home win,” Campbell said.
“Every team wants to make their home ground a fortress and to start with three successive defeats at the KCOM has been frustrating, but we’re determined to put that right against Ipswich.
“We’re going into Saturday’s game in a positive frame of mind and we’re determined to come away with what would be a big three points for the team.”
However, things are looking up for Nigel Adkins’ men after an impressive performance against a poor Derby side prior to the international break, where a late Florian Jozefzoon goal denied Hull their share of the points.
“We competed against and dominated a top team in Derby, and whilst we didn’t get our rewards for that last time out, we must look to build on the positive aspects of the performance.
“We’ve been working hard on the training pitch during the international break and we’re determined to pick up some points from the coming games.”
