Tubbs Wants Leading Role

11 March 2013 11:06
Super-sub Matt Tubbs is looking to become the Cherries main man as the Dorset side look to get their promotion push back on track.

With the Cherries push for promotion well and truely de-railed in recent weeks, subsitute Matt Tubbs is hoping to lay claim to a starting place, as the business end of the season draws closer.

Speaking in the Bournemouth Evening Echo, Tubbs is quoted as saying: "I thought we deserved all three points. Doncaster came here with a game-plan and put out all their big boys and tried to rough us up a bit. But we still should have won. There are nine games remaining and still a lot of points to play for. We went on a long unbeaten run earlier in the season and there is no reason why we can’t do it again. I am willing the lads to win every game and am willing the strikers to score as many goals as they can. I want to be a Championship player next season and, if we all stick together, there is no reason why we can’t get there. All I can do is keep plugging away and, hopefully, take my chances when they come. If I am on the bench, I am more than happy to come on and try to get goals like I did against Doncaster. It is a team game. Brett and Lewis have done a great job all season and have got a partnership which has worked for so long. All I can do is wait in the wings. I would be stupid to say I don’t want to start games. It is my job and I get paid to play football. I don’t really want to be on the bench for the whole season and want to grab a shirt. I am 29 in the summer and am not getting any younger. I want us to go up to the next level".
