'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Dobbie To Enjoy More Play-off Success

Swansea City attacker Stephen Dobbie is looking for more play-off success after helping Blackpool to promotion last season.

The striker, now playing as more of an attacking midfielder, was on loan at Blackpool last year and was part of Ian Holloway's team that won an unbelievable promotion to the top flight, beating our arch rivals Cardiff City in the final.

Dobbie, who scored 2 goals in Saturday's 4-0 home win against Sheffield United, is in an upbeat mood ahead of Thursday's play-off semi-final first leg at Nottingham Forest:

"If we continue to play like we are hopefully we won`t be too far away,"

"Football-wise we`re maybe better than Blackpool were and the team spirit is there.

"That was the main thing for me last year, the team spirit. We all played for the gaffer and I think we`ve got it exactly the same here.

"To know that you`re actually going to Wembley and have so many good memories if you win it was great last season and the boys in our dressing room know we can do it.

"We`ve had a great run over the last couple of games and got momentum, similar to Blackpool last year when we went on a great run to the play-offs."


Dobbie believes it will be a 'hard game' against Forest:

"You need to take your chances at the right time, especially away from home. We`re away to Forest where we got turned over 3-1 so it`s going to be a hard game.

"It will be nice if we can get a decent result and come back to the Liberty and get the crowd behind us and I`m sure we`ll do well.

They`ve got some great players who have been there a few years and know about disappointment so they`ll want to rectify that."
