This is the alleged deliberate booking that got Blackburn’s DJ Campbell arrested for match fixing vs Ipswich

The Sun broke shocking news on Monday that Blackburn Rovers striker DJ Campbell arrested on match fixing charges for an incident which took place against Ipswich.

DJ Campbell was one of six players questioned in connection to allegations of spot fixing in football matches.

Campbell, a 32-year-old striker, is by far the most well known of the group having played in the Premier League for Blackpool, QPR and Birmingham.

The source of the match fixing allegation surrounding DJ Campbell centres on a yellow card he picked up last Tuesday in the Championship match between Ipswich and Blackburn.

Blackburn lost 3-1 with Campbell booked in the 25th minute for a horribly late challenge on Aaron Cresswell by the touchline.

As noted by the commentator at the time, Campbell’s rash tackle on Cresswell was his second poor foul in the game in the opening 23 minutes.
