Holloway pins his hopes on DJ

BY foxsports • April 6, 2011

The 29-year-old returns to action against Arsenal on Sunday having been suspended for the last three matches. The last match in that run, the 3-0 defeat at Fulham, saw Holloway's side slip to 17th in the table and he admits they are missing Campbell's goals. Holloway said: "At Fulham it looked like my lads needed a boost and maybe that boost will be having DJ back. He is a different type of player and his goals have been sadly missed. "If you look at what happened on Sunday we were so punished by their strikers. How many chances did Bobby Zamora have? Probably two, and he scored twice. We needed to be as incisive as that. "I think we are maybe not as sharp as we can be when DJ is playing. We need somebody to be as sharp as Zamora was. Maybe DJ will give us a bit of extra belief. "He will be fresh going into the final seven games and probably desperate to show what a good player he is. He was scoring goals and doing well before the ban so hopefully we want him to pick up where he left off - we need him to."
