Dobbie hoping for fresh Palace chance

Stephen Dobbie hopes for a chance at Crystal Palace.

Dobbie admits he is unsure if he has a future at Crystal Palace, despite scoring four goals in the 13-1 pre-season friendly win against Austrian side GAK Graz.

He told Palace's official website: "I won't get carried away. It was our first game against an Austrian local team, so I'll take it for what it is, train as hard as I can and see what the manager thinks after that.

"Obviously the final decision is up to him (Tony Pulis), but I'll just keep working hard, as I've done this week, and see what happens.

"I'm delighted obviously with the goals, especially as it's our first run-out but what's more important is building the match fitness and getting back to that awareness on the pitch.

"Overall it was a good performance, a professional performance from the lads.

"This week was all about fitness and getting confidence for tougher games so the boys will take that into the trip to America next week."
