Harry Redknapp has revealed that Fraizer Campbell will start Thursday night's UEFA Cup Group D clash against NEC Nijmegen.
The striker has looked lively all season but has caught the manager's eye with three goals in his last three appearances.
He gets his chance with Roman Pavlyuchenko cup-tied in the competition.
"Fraizer's a terrific young talent, he's bright and full of energy," stated Harry at Nijmegen's McDos Goffertstadion. "He's scored goals for us and whenever he's come off the bench he's played well.
"So he will start on Thursday night and I'm looking forward to watching him play."
