Blackpool's DJ ready to rock the "Theatre of Dreams"

Blackpool striker DJ Campbell insists he has no fears ahead of the crucial meeting with Manchester United on Sunday at Old Trafford.
The hosts have clinched the Barclays Premier League title on the back of a staggering record at the stadium - dropping only two points all season. However Campbell, who took his season's goal tally to 13 in the victory against Bolton, is up for the fight.

He said: "I am sure a few of the lads will be nervous, they are only human. But I have been fairly calm throughout the season, which has stood me in good stead. Hopefully I will be able to nick a goal or two on Sunday and we will be able to do the business as a team. Fingers crossed we can."

He added: "The lads will be doing their utmost to get a win. If not, we want at least a point. We will be giving it all we have got to try and stay in this league.

"It is going to be hard, no matter what team they put out. They have not lost at home all season. If it is the second team or the third team, they are all internationals."

Even though Blackpool are in the relegation zone Campbell says people should be proud of the football they have played and applaud the work of manager Ian Holloway.

He said: "It is almost the same team that was playing last season and they were favourites to get relegated (from the Championship).

"When you put it into that perspective what we have done, at this level, against world-class players, we have over-achieved massively.

"I say to the boys all the time, there is nothing to be ashamed of.

"We have done our best. Hopefully we have proved a lot of people wrong and that we can do perform at this level."
