JAMES DOBSON explained that a win for Slough Town was more important than his own personal success on Monday.

Dobson came on as a half-time substitute to score the winning goal in a 2-1 victory against Hayes & Yeading United at Arbour Park.

It was the second goal in as many matches for the wide midfielder who also netted in the 3-1 win at Cirencester Town on Saturday.

He is happy to contribute with goals, but believes it is vital that Slough kick on and turn their new home into a fortress.

“Personally it is good to score a winner, but more importantly it was a good three points for the boys and fans,” Dobson told the Observer.

“It wasn’t the best of games considering we’ve probably played better football, but in spells we rode the match and took our opportunities when they came. It was vital we got the three points and I’m really happy overall.

“There’s a long way to go but we are happy where we are at the moment and with what we’re doing, so it’s just a case of taking it step by step.

“We’ve got a really good squad this season so I am happy to come on and help the team, but it’s more important that we got the win and I’m just very happy with it.

“I am happy it [the goal] got us the points but it’s a case of kicking on. I’m more bothered about the team and getting the win at the end of the day.

“It is a nice feeling scoring the winning goal, anyone would say that, but it’s vital we got the victory.”

Dobson added: “Everyone is more than happy coming back after all these years and I can’t thank the fans enough, they were quality.

“Anyone at this level wants to be playing in front of a large crowd and when they’re behind you it’s a good feeling.

“The stadium is fantastic. The pitch is going to take us a little while to get used to but it’s really going to suit the way we want to play.

“We want to make this place a fortress so when teams do come we want to make sure we win every game if we can.”
