Campbell has been in charge of the team since former manager Steven Mackay stood down over a month ago after the 6–2 defeat at Fraserburgh.

Since then Campbell, has turned the club’s fortunes around, winning their last five games in all competitions, including four in the Highland League.

Campbell, who was assistant manager under Mackay, says he was not originally keen to be considered with any talk over being permanent manager at Dudgeon Park.

However, after impressive performances in recent weeks, he says that he would like to be considered for the position.

“To begin with I distanced myself with any of that talk,” said Campbell.

“I just wanted to focus myself on the games.

“But as time goes on, I would say that it would be something that would interest me.

“However, I have had no discussions regarding that and we are just taking each game as it comes.”

At the time of going to press yesterday, Brora had made no permanent appointment.

Campbell has been impressive in his role as interim manager so far, winning their last five matches as his team have scored 19 goals without conceding.

Last weekend was arguably their best result of the season, defeating title contenders Buckie Thistle 2–0 at Dudgeon Park with Matthew Wright scoring both of the goals.

Campbell says as well as scoring goals, not conceding in five games has been just as impressive.

“It has been five clean sheets in a row and that is the most pleasing thing for me,” he said.

“We pride ourselves on our clean sheet record as it always gives you a chance of winning.”
