Loanee striker DJ Campbell is hopeful that he will be able to score the goals to move Ipswich Town away from relegation trouble.

Ipswich Town striker DJ Campbell has insisted that he is used to the pressure of being expected to score goals.

The 30-year-old joined the struggling Tractor Boys on a three-month loan deal from Queens Park Rangers earlier this month.

With his new club currently in the Championship's relegation zone, Campbell has acknowledged the fact that he has been acquired to score the goals that will move them away from trouble.

"I know I have been brought in to score goals – that's my job," he told the East Anglian Daily Times. "I've always been hard on myself when I miss chances, even when I'm not fit. I expect to score most of the chances that I get and I have done that for most of my career.

"That's normal pressure to me and I love pressure like that. I love playing football and that's all I want to do really – play football and enjoy myself and I know I will do that here and hopefully score the goals that will push us up the league."

Ipswich are without a win in nine matches.
