Michael O’Neill’s post-match verdict
Michael O’Neill saw Tyrese Campbell knock in his fifth and sixth goals of the season – and is convinced that there is still more to develop in the 20-year-old striker.
Campbell has emerged as a leading figure in O’Neill’s Stoke team in 2020, having found a new role as an outside forward originally in a superb win at Huddersfield Town on New Year’s Day.
He has scored 13 since then, including two more against Huddersfield today as he helped secure a 4-3 win in torrential rain at the bet365.
