Archie is Ton's Irn man

MORTON'S Archie Campbell says he was delighted to the Irn-Bru First Division Player of the Month award last week - but the striker insists he always believed he had what it takes to be a hot shot.

The diminutive forward, now in his second season at Cappielow, has bagged 11 goals this season - his highest tally in senior football.

He now has the chance to supplement that tally when Ton return to league duty against Hamilton Accies today.

Although thrilled with the award - which follows the Young Player accolade last month - Campbell is adamant he is only interested in keeping Ton on form.

He told the Tele: "I've won another award and have obviously scored a few goals but the main thing is that team were also winning games. We are picking up points and our undefeated run is still going. Long may it continue and hopefully we can keep getting results.

"I've scored 11 goals now but I go into every game looking to try and score - that's what I do, I feel I can score in every single game. I go into every game knowing I can score and I have a feeling I can score. I've picked up 11 so far and long may that continue.

"It's the most I've scored at senior level but I was always prolific in youth level - I've been known for scoring goals."

Campbell believes that a home win against then leaders Patrick Thistle has proven to be the catalyst for Ton's recent impressive form.

He said: "Thistle was a massive result for us and it took us into the Dunfermline game where we were two goals up but just couldn't hold on. Hopefully we can keep the unbeaten run going."
