Brendan Rodgers praised striker Stephen Dobbie after he scored a superb goal to help us beat Cheltenham Town 1-0 at the Liberty Stadium this afternoon.
|"Dobbie has to be our most natural finisher, but can he up top on his own?"|
|HAVE YOUR SAY|
The Swans dominated the entire 90 minutes and we had plenty of chances to score goals, especially in the first half, but the woodwork denied us 5 times throughout the game.
Dobbie broke the deadlock early in the second half, turning in the box before unleashing an unstoppable strike into the bottom corner.
‘It was a great bit of skill and a fantastic strike for the goal,’
‘I watched Stephen (Dobbie) a few times when he was on loan at Blackpool last season.
‘He is a massive talent and you could see by his celebration how much it meant to him.
‘He can score goals; that’s for sure. I said to him afterwards that if he watches TV tonight he won’t see a much better goal than that.’
Dobbie has had a disappointing spell so far at the club, as former boss Paulo Sousa didn’t give him a chance in the League last season and loaned him out to Blackpool – where he scored 4 goals in 16 appearances. He contributed to the Seasiders’ promotion to the Championship and has been linked with a permanent move to Bloomfield Road.
Hopefully Rodgers is the man to get the best out of him and finally provide us with a regular goalscorer, as we desperately need one after last year’s constant struggle to find the net.
