Dobbie stays calm in wait for a goal
Stephen Dobbie insists he does not feel under pressure to score his first Albion goal.
But the former Blackpool star concedes it would be “ironic” if he got off the mark at Bloomfield Road today.
Dobbie has not netted since helping the Tangerines beat Birmingham in last season’s play-offs.
The Glaswegian has yet to make a major impact with the Seagulls since choosing them ahead of a return to Blackpool in August.
He said: “The longer it goes, especially at a new club, a striker always wants to get his first goal.
“But I have been through that before so I’ve not got to think about that too much.
“I think the whole team just want to get the goals and get a win.”
Dobbie expects to be booed by Blackpool fans but said: “I’m sure deep down they will be happy to see me doing well.”
Asked if he fancied his chances of scoring against his old club, he added: “That would be ironic but it’s not about me getting my first goal.
“It is about the team trying to stay in that play-off area.
“If any team is still there around about Christmas they can go on a run in the second part of the season.”
