Why Josh Campbell is helping Hibs cope with absence of Kyle Magennis
Few people could have predicted after his six-minute cameo against Motherwell in the opening game of the season that Josh Campbell would, before the calendar year was up, be an integral part of the Hibs first team. Not because he lacks ability or the required character, but the midfield was performing to such high levels that it would have been folly to change it up unless unavoidable.In the latter stages of the match in Perth he was playing as an auxiliary centre-half to allow Paul Hanlon a free role on the wing and in the middle of the park as Hibs overwhelmed Callum Davidson’s side.
It was a test that Stoke were able to pass with flying colours and they produced a performance and result that shows they need to be taken seriously within the promotion race this term.
Had Stoke suffered a defeat they would have missed an excellent chance to climb back into the top-six after Coventry City’s loss to West Brom on Saturday.
Often for teams that just miss out on the play-offs there will be times to reflect back on at the end of the campaign where they failed to take chances to close the gap on teams around them, Stoke ensured that would not be the case for them on Sunday.
Campbell’s form is going to be crucial for the Potters between now and the end of the season. The way he took his chance and sprinted away from QPR’s backline underlines his class.
If he can keep fully fit and carry on improving then there is no doubt he will score many more potentially vital goals for Stoke during the rest of the campaign.
