George Dobson: Injury-Time Winner 'is What Dreams Are Made Of'

Walsall midfielder George Donson has spoken to the press following Saturday's much-needed League One victory over Northampton Town and has discussed how if felt to secure the goal which should see the Saddlers remain in the third tier for at least another season.
20-year-old Dobson, who slipped the ball past former Saddlers stopper Richard O'Donnell in the early stages of second-half stoppage time, admitted that it's hard to describe the feeling when the ball hit the back of the net.

George, who was speaking via the Express & Star, said; "When the ball came to me I was just thinking shoot! I’m not known for scoring goals – that is something I need to improve on – but it’s come back to me and it was a lovely weighted pass. It was one of them where you are running onto it and you just have to hit it. And I couldn’t have caressed it any better. The feeling when it went in, I don’t know how to describe it. I didn’t know what to do.

"But feelings like that, that is why you play football. It was indescribable how brilliant a feeling it was. But that was then. This is now, we have enjoyed it but we know we need one more point. We are going to fight to get that point at Bradford tomorrow to make sure we don’t go to Fleetwood needing a result."

The midfielder, who returned to the club on a permanent basis following a spell with Sparta Rotterdam then went on to praise the bumper crowd which had descended on Banks's Stadium, admitting that the near-9,000 people in attendance kept the side going for the final stages of the match, he continued; "The goal is what dreams are made of, I was ecstatic but I was ecstatic for the boys as well. We worked our socks off for 90 minutes. It wasn’t pretty at times and we were under the cosh for periods of the game. But the way everyone stuck together, it was fully deserved and I couldn’t be prouder of everyone connected with the football club.

"The fans were the best I have seen them. It was basically a sell-out and the way they got behind us, it gave us that extra three or four per cent that you sometimes need. They kept us going in the last 15 minutes when the game really opened up. It paid off and I can only thank them for their efforts."
