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

Dobbie Determined To Stay At Swansea City

Stephen Dobbie says he wants to stay and fight for a place at Swansea City following reports linking him with a loan move to Millwall.

The Scottish attacking midfielder hasn't started a game in the Premier League since the opening day defeat at Manchester City two months ago.

He's been an unused substitute on a number of occasions now, yet he played a big role in the lead up to the Play-Off final, and scored in the semi-final against Nottingham Forest.

Despite a lack of first team places and most of his football being played in the Reserves, Dobbie wants to stay and fight for a regular first team place, instead of going out on loan to a Championship club.

"I don`t want to go out on loan,'

"I have worked all my career to get to the Premier League, so now that I am here I am not going to give it up without a fight.

"I hadn`t heard anything about Millwall being interested and I don`t know anything about it.

"But it`s nothing for me anyway. I am just working hard in training and doing my best in the reserve games to try to get back into the team."


Dobbie also says it's been frustrating not playing very often in the League he's always wanted to play in, he added:

"I haven`t played as much as I would have liked so far this season, especially coming off the back of a good season last year,"

"But the boys have been playing well, and the gaffer has brought in a couple more quality players in my position now we are in the top division.

"I want to kick on, but I just have to bide my time. I need to keep working hard like I did last year and I am sure my chance will come."

"Of course it`s frustrating not being in the side I think any professional footballer who says anything different is probably playing the wrong game," Dobbie said. "But I was patient last season and I ended up having a great year, so that`s what I`ll try to do again. I will never think that I cannot play at this level."
