Sol Campbell has been warned he faces a baptism of fire when he makes his Notts County debut today against Sammy McIlroy's Morecambe.

Former Arsenal and Tottenham defender Campbell will be up against a no-holds-barred character in Morecambe striker Paul Mullin when he starts for Notts County at Christie Park.

Manchester United legend McIlroy said: "Sol hasn't played a competitive game since May, and I hope he hasn't been cutting any corners in his training.

"He is going to have his hands full with Mullin and if Sol is a bit rusty or off the pace he will get exposed.

"I brought Mullin in from Accrington just before the transfer window to give us a bit more presence up front. He is a gritty, no-nonsense type of centre-forward - a throwback to the old days.

"He will not have too much respect for Sol's reputation - in fact he will see this as a chance to make a bit of a name for himself."
