DROP’S NOT FOR US, SAYS DOBBIE
STRIKER Stephen Dobbie experienced the pain of relegation with Blackpool last term, but does not expect current club Bolton Wanderers to go the same way.
The Tangerines finished rock bottom of the Championship, 20 points from safety, with a host of off-field problems adding to their misery.
Bolton find themselves in the bottom three, 16 games into the season, but Dobbie does not fear the drop.
“We feel we’ve got the quality to get out of trouble, but it doesn’t just happen, it takes hard work,” he said.
“I think the players feel they’ve got something to prove after Tuesday night’s 20 defeat to Ipswich.”
Dobbie was an unused substitute at Portman Road and has found opportunities at the Macron Stadium few and far between this season.
However, he accepts the team gaining points is more important, saying: “I haven’t played as much as I’d have liked.
“But I’m old enough now to bite my tongue and get on with it.”
