Carlisle hot shot Karl Hawley hopes to prove he is good enough to play in The Premiership.
Carlisle United hot shot Karl Hawley is hoping to prove he is good enough to play in The Premiership.
Hawley has been an integral figure in The Cumbrians' rise from The Conference to League One over the past two years.
He rattled in 26 goals in League Two last season and is tipped to make an impact in the third tier this term.
But the 24-year-old has set his sights higher and wants to emulate former Brentford striker DJ Campbell in clinching a move to the top flight.
"I believe I can play in The Premiership," declared Hawley. "I know that if I am given a chance, it will be either sink or swim.
"I know that chances are few and far between, but DJ Campbell did it last season for Birmingham.
"I've only got 12 months left on my contract, but I'm just concentrating on scoring goals.
"As long as I do the business, it's up to others."
