Short spell out for Dobbie

Forward likely to miss Swansea's next two games with ankle injury

Stephen Dobbie: Is likely to miss Swansea's next two matches due to an ankle injury

Swansea City forward Stephen Dobbie is expected to sit out the club's next two Premier League games due to an ankle injury.

The Scot suffered the problem after coming off the bench during the second half of Swansea's 3-1 defeat at Norwich City last weekend.

Scans have cleared the 28-year-old of significant damage, but he has already been ruled out of this weekend's trip to Wolves.

He is also likely to miss the following week's game at home to Bolton Wanderers as Swans boss Brendan Rodgers adopts a cautious approach with the injury.

Rodgers told the South Wales Evening Post: "Stephen is a feeling a little bit sore and he will probably be out for a couple of weeks.

"It has eased a lot since Saturday, but we will rule him out for Wolves for sure."

Dobbie has not started a Premier League game since the Swans' opening defeat at Manchester City and has subsequently made five substitute appearances.
