Camps: I'm happy to have hit the ground running

Midfielder Callum Camps spoke to the club after scoring his first league goal for Fleetwood Town in Saturday’s 2-1 win at Highbury Stadium.

Camps – who scored in Town’s EFL Trophy fixture against Carlisle United earlier this month – opened the scoring in the side’s league opener after picking up a loose ball on the edge of the box, and drilling his strike past the Burton goalkeeper.

Fleetwood managed to pick up all three points on the day after Paddy Madden scored the side’s second goal of the day with ten minutes to go, cancelling out John Brayford’s earlier equaliser.

Here is what the midfielder had to say after the game:

On getting his goal…

“It’s good when I came in, I spoke to the manager and he said they want me to score as many goals as I can and get in positions to score. Three competitive games now and two goals, not a bad start.

“I’m delighted to score again, that’s two goals now and I’m happy to hit the ground running.

“In terms of importance of games, I’d obviously say the league one means more, you want to score the goals in the league, you want to win the league so that’s where I want to score the goals.”

On the chances created…

“We had loads of chances to score today and I always knew that if I get myself into positions and run into the box, I’m going to get the goals so luckily they’ve come in.

“You know with Paddy over the last few years, he scores up to 20 goals a season and you know if he’s anywhere around the six yard, 18 yard box and gets a chance on goal he’s going to score.

“The same with Hilly, unbelievable playing at a young age playing in the league against obviously a good team like Burton, he’s held his own and done amazing really and same with Stubbsy.

On the experienced midfield…

“It's one of the main factors why I thought coming here would help me better my career, having Whelan, Coutts and Duffy all around the midfield area so there’s only one way you’re going to get better and that’s playing with better players.

“With the lads and the experience we’ve got like Whelan and Coutts, players like that, they just keep everyone going and if we keep fighting, we’re not going to have every game on our own terms so if we keep fighting.

“We’ve brought him in and then Mark Duffy who’s obviously been around, class player, I’ve seen him when he’s in training and technically he’s unbelievable and when he came on today he gets on the ball and calms the game down and it helps us massively.”
