Striker Stephen Dobbie started for the Reserves team today as they beat Forest Green Rovers 2-0 at the Gnoll.

He has recently returned from a rib injury and played 69 minutes of this afternoon’s game – he could give Paulo Sousa a welcome boost on Saturday by returning to first team action.

Austrian youngster Besian Idrizaj scored his fourth Reserves goal to complete the 2-0 victory after Matty Collins’ early opener. His return to midfield for this game seemed to do him the world of good as he found the net after just 70 seconds.
