Dobson 'Will Have a Fight' to Get His Place Back

Dobson 'Will Have a Fight' to Get His Place Back

Walsall manager Dean Keates has spoken to the press and admitted that midfielder George Dobson may have his work cut out if he is hoping to return to the side when his current spell on the sidelines comes to an end.
Dobson, who has been in fine form so far this season, has missed the last three matches with a knock, has seen Liam Kinsella and Isaiah Osbourne form a goal-scoring partnership which may be difficult to break up, especially if the Saddlers can continue their recent return to form.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Dean said; "With George, he’s our captain, but he’s not ready at the moment. When he is ready, if those lads keep performing the way they are, he’ll have a fight to get his place back in the team. Ozzy has got a wealth of experience.

"He’s still only 31 himself. He keeps it simple. He’s probably someone the fans don’t always see or fully appreciate, but as a team-mate of his, you’re grateful he’s in your team."
