Tubbs wants game time

11 September 2012

Matt Tubbs is ready to leave Bournemouth if he fails to gain more first-team opportunities.

The 28-year-old moved to Dean Court from Crawley for a club record fee in January when Lee Bradbury was at the helm, but has been limited to a solitary start under Paul Groves this term.

Tubbs was an unused substitute when the Cherries notched their first win of the campaign at Yeovil on Saturday, after being left out of the squad to face south coast neighbours Portsmouth in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

He told the Echo: "I came here to play football and I'm not at the moment which is very frustrating. I want to be playing and if I am not going to be playing here, then I want to go and play somewhere else.

"I spoke to the manager a few days ago and we went over a few things, but I didn't get on again against Yeovil. We've had a few games now and I haven't been given a chance."

Tubbs added: "It's very frustrating. Over the past two seasons, albeit at a lower level, I have scored 59 goals.

"I'm a goalscorer but I am still waiting for my chance and if that doesn't come along soon, I will have to weigh up my options.

"I'm 28 now, I am in my prime as a striker and I want to be playing games and scoring goals."
