Donachie praised Campbell after their thrashing by Aston Villa.
"The big positive for me was Adam (Campbell)," he told nufc.co.uk.
"Adam was back close to what he was, making runs, working hard for the team and looking a goal threat. That's what defenders don't like and with somebody like that in your team, you're always a goal threat. Without somebody like that, you don't give them problems so that's a big part of my report to the manager.
"Adam worked really hard and he's getting back to what he was."
