DJ Campbell vows to repay Blackpool

DJ Campbell has vowed to repay Blackpool after his moment of madness against Wolves forced him to spend a frustrating six weeks on the sidelines through suspension.

Campbell was hit with a three-match ban for angrily pushing Wolves defender Richard Stearman in the Seasiders' dismal 4-0 Premier League defeat at Molineux on February 26.

The period since has included two blank weekends due to Blackpool's early exit from the FA Cup and also a host of international fixtures, meaning the 29-year-old has had a long time to reflect on his dismissal.

Campbell, who has scored nine goals this term, is now anxious to put it right as the relegation-threatened Tangerines host Arsenal on Sunday.

He told the club's website: "The last six weeks have been hell for me, if I'm honest. When I'm not playing football, it's not a good thing. I need to be playing.

"Obviously I regret it. I get kicked all the time but I don't know why I reacted in that way. I play with a lot of passion and want to win and sometimes you let things get the better of you.

"I don't think I slept properly for two or three days after I was sent off. We have got seven games left and hopefully I can score the goals to put it right. I let the boys, the club and myself down and I've been thinking when I get back I've got to do as much as I can.''

Blackpool are just a point above the bottom three after winning only one of their last 11 games.
