Dobbie Hopes to Score More Goals

Dobbie Hopes to Score More Goals

Stephen Dobbie says he hopes to score more goals in the remaining 10 games after netting his 6th of the season last night against Watford.

The Scot said he was enjoying himself after making his way back into the first team, but was disappointed that the team didn't hold onto the 1-0 win last night - courtesy of his first half goal.

Dobbie told the Official Site:

'I've got myself back in the team over the last couple of weeks and I'm really enjoying myself,''

'I don't know whether I'm classed as a striker or a midfielder these days, but it doesn't really matter. I'll play wherever the gaffer picks me and try my best to help the team get to where we want to be.

'It was nice to get another goal against Watford. I had to wait a long time for number five, but the sixth one has come quite quickly.

'It was a great ball through from Mark Gower - something he's capable of doing - and I was glad to get on the scoresheet again. Hopefully I can get a few more before the end of the season.''


Dobbie also said that it's important now for the Swans to move on and concentrate on getting points in the two big games coming up - Saturday at Derby and Nottingham Forest at home the following week.

'It's disappointing when you see the results over the last two games. We could have been a little bit clear,'' he added. 'But on the positive side we are still second on goal difference with another game down.

'I thought we played some fantastic football for 70 minutes. We dominated the game and I thought their goal came from a loose ball. But Danny (Graham) has scored a lot of goals this season and it was a good finish.

'We've seen out games in the past, so we've just got to take this one the chin and move on because this league is hard work and you come up against great teams every week.

'There are two massive games coming up against Derby and Nottingham Forest before we can re-group during the international break for the final push.''
