Birmingham manager Chris Hughton knows all about the threat of Stephen Dobbie ahead of Friday night's play-off semi-final first leg away to Blackpool.

Hughton tried to lure the Scottish forward to St Andrew's at the end of the January transfer window but parent club Swansea were unwilling to let him leave at that moment in time. That stance changed on the final day of the emergency loan window in March and Dobbie joined Blackpool on a deal until the end of the season and has scored five goals in seven games.

"Stephen is one we were trying to bring in and weren't able to, and of course Blackpool have benefited from that," Hughton said of the 29-year-old, who helped the Seasiders to play-off glory during a similar spell two years ago.
