Forward Ready For Third Stint In Tangerine

Stephen Dobbie says he's 'happy' to be back at Blackpool, as all attentions now turn to a home game against Leicester City on Saturday. 

The forward was a surprise name on the team sheet for The Seasiders' fixture at Millwall, with the 30-year-old among the substitutes after completing a loan move from Crystal Palace. 

No stranger to playing in tangerine, Dobbie had no hesitation in moving back to the club for a third time when a loan move out of Selhurst Park was discussed. 

"I know the club really well and the fans, so it was an easy decision to come back," he said following the 3-1 defeat at Millwall. "I love playing at Bloomfield Road so it was a very simple decision for me.

"I know most of the boys here and the couple of Scottish lads who have signed. It's a great group in the dressing room. I know the Gaffer from when he used to come and watch Tom, I'm really looking forward to working for him."

Dobbie has reached the Championship play-off final in his previous spells at the club, achieving promotion to the Premier League in 2010. Having achieved similar feats with Swansea and Crystal Palace, he's now looking to make another big impact. 

"I've played in a couple of good Blackpool teams and hopefully this is the start of another successful period," he said. "I now want to help Blackpool get back to where they were a couple of years ago."
