Dobson: a frustrating couple of months

5 March 2019

George Dobson was pleased to put a frustrating couple of months behind him on Saturday, personally and collectively, as the team picked up a deserved point against Burton Albion.

The 21-year-old has been suffering with reoccurring injuries since the turn of the year, injuries which have limited him to just four starts since January 1st.

And the talismanic midfielder is confident now that with four points from the last two games, he and the team can now push on and start looking forward.

“The last couple of months have been frustrating with the injuries that I have had,” said Dobson.

“I have just had little niggles that are part and parcel of football but I seem to have gotten over them now and hopefully I can keep myself fit between now and the end of the season and really help the boys stay away from trouble. 

“Four points from the last two games is 100% a step in the right direction.

“We were down to 10 men for the majority of the Bradford game and then we have come away from home to a team that did turn us over quite convincingly at home earlier on in the season but we have put in a good performance against them.

“I think that is a really good stepping stone for us heading into the last 11 games of the season. 

“We have had a look at the table and we are just two points off 13th. We can’t look at it the other way.

“There are a lot of teams still in the fight and we have now got four points from the last two games so we are starting to pick up a little bit.”

The youngster was also quick to praise the fans after Saturday’s game against the Brewers, insisting that the 1,184 breathed confidence into the players with the constant noise in the away end.

“It makes a massive difference having a big following with you,” he continued.

“There were over 1,100 fans here at the stadium and it just breathes confidence for the players hearing them throughout.

“When they’re pushing you on and willing you on it gives you the confidence but unfortunately we didn’t quite get what we deserved but it was a positive performance and a positive point.”
