Fraizer sharp!

Fraizer Campbell is delighted he took his chance to make an impression in his first start under Harry Redknapp.

The on-loan striker scored twice - the first goals he has scored for the Club - in our 4-2 Carling Cup fourth round victory over Liverpool at The Lane on Wednesday night.

And with strike-partner on the night Roman Pavlyuchenko also hitting a brace, and Darren Bent currently in free-scoring form, Fraizer is pleased the strikers are all keeping Harry happy.

"I'm very happy with the way things turned out on the night," he said. "It was great to start the game and score a couple of goals.

"The manager put his confidence in me by giving me a start, and whenever I get these chances, I have to make sure I do well.

"It's good for the manager that all the strikers are scoring goals, confidence is high in the camp and I'm just happy to be part of the team, whether that's starting or doing my bit off the bench."

Both of Fraizer's goals came before half-time and put us in a commanding 3-0 lead going into the break.

Talking us through the strikes, he added: "For the first one, Jamie [O'Hara] played it in and I saw the keeper come flying in behind me, so I knew there was nobody in the goal.

"I just had to concentrate but it came off my shin and went right in the far corner, so I was a bit worried for a second!

"For the second one, Aaron's [Lennon] put in a brilliant ball and I just headed it back across the keeper.

"You don't often get the chance to put four goals past a team like Liverpool, but we did that and I was very happy to be involved in it."
