Campbell: Cardiff can´t afford mistakes

1 August 2013 10:26

Fraizer Campbell insists that Cardiff City will have no room for error if they are to be competitive in the Premier League this season.

The 25-year-old striker knows exactly what it takes to mix it in the top flight, having featured for Manchester United, Tottenham and Sunderland so far during his career.

Campbell, who signed for Cardiff in January, is now hoping to pass on the benefit of his experience to his team-mates, with the club having suffered a 3-2 loss to Brentford and a 1-1 draw with League Two outfit Cheltenham Town as part of their pre-season fixtures.

He believes that they will need to step up their game if they are to be competitive on their return to the top table of English football after 51 years.

"The mistakes we have been making during pre-season must be eradicated by the time we play our first match," he told WalesOnline.

"We won’t get a second chance then. Mistakes will be punished.

"But we’ve worked hard to achieve Premier League status and we’ll do everything possible to stay there.

"That’s the first aim and anything above that is a bonus."

Campbell, who scored seven goals in nine starts for the club in the Championship last season, will look to play a part as Cardiff continue their warm-up campaign with a run of tough fixtures against European opposition.

Malky Mackay's men take on Serie A outfit Chievo on Saturday before facing La Liga side Athletic Bilbao a week later.
