Williamson: So easy to play with Newcastle pal Campbell

Mike Williamson admits he enjoyed playing with Sol Campbell at the back for Newcastle United.

Williamson will have no concerns about playing alongside former England defender Campbell at a moment’s notice.

“You know what you’re going to get,” he said. “He organises you and he’s a big talent as well.

“He showed it against Chelsea when he played against a top-class side (in last month’s League Cup tie). I knew when he came on against City he would calm things down as a team and we could get back into it. I think we did that well.”
