Campbell, who arrived at Stoke from Manchester City’s academy in 2016, has been in fine form since the start of the year, scoring four goals and providing two assists over Stoke’s eight matches in 2020.
The £3.15 million-rated forward, who featured predominantly as a substitute towards the beginning of the season, has averaged a highly impressive 7.25 WhoScored match rating in his last eight fixtures, ensuring that he is one of the first names on Michael O’Neill’s teamsheet.
Following the Potters’ respectable 0-0 draw away at in-form Blackburn on Wednesday evening, Campbell took to social media, stating: “Every point counts… Big thanks to all the travelling fans. Top support every time.”
In reaction to his post, Stoke fans sent messages of encouragement to the forward, with many stating their fixture against Luton this Saturday is a must-win match.

What do we think?
Campbell and Stoke still have their work cut out for them in their last 11 games of the season, as the remarkable upturn in form of the bottom three clubs means that the Potters hover just one point above the drop zone. However, with Luton, Wigan and Barnsley all to play over their next six fixtures, safety would appear to remain in Stoke’s hands.
