Campbell poised for weekend debut with Newcastle

Veteran defender Sol Campbell says there is every possibility of making his Newcastle debut against Blackpool on Saturday. After playing another hour of reserve-team football against Liverpool on Tuesday night, Campbell admits he is just waiting on the call from Toon boss Chris Hughton.

Hughton watched the 2-2 draw from the stands at Whitley Park as Campbell, the oldest player on the pitch, came through the clash unscathed.

"I'm going to keep on pushing," Campbell told Chronicle Live. "I'm in with a shout, I just have to keep training hard now.

"Once you have the minutes under your belt you just have to wait for the call from the gaffer.

"I needed to get the minutes, and that's what it is all about really.

"I'm getting those minutes and I'm getting stronger and stronger."
