Robbo Ready For Second Chance

14 October 2012

PNE.Com speaks to defender Chris Robertson following the 0-0 draw against MK Dons…

“Next weekend we have another tough game against a team aiming to win promotion, it will be a tough encounter but one we are looking to win.”

“It was a game of two halves, they were on the front foot in the first half and we were on the front foot in the second half.

He concluded: “MK Dons had a few chances in the first half and we had in the second, overall a draw was a fair result but then again either side could have nicked the win. We are happy with the point at the end of the game but at the start we wanted all three.

Reflecting on the goalless draw in front of the Sky cameras against Karl Robinson’s MK Dons, Robinson believes a point is probably a fair result but like always the target is again set for three next weekend against his former employers Sheffield United.

“I played alongside Bailey [Wright] when I first joined the Club, it doesn’t matter who gets the shirt, whoever gets the shirt the gaffer has confidence in them and we have to take our chances and win the game.”

“Competition is good for any player and it keeps you on your toes because somebody is else is ready to have a go but it is about taking your chance.

“The gaffer has always said it is a squad game, we have 25 players in our squad and everybody is good enough to play, it is just what we do on and off the pitch which determines who gets the nod. There is a long way to go and the aim has always been to get promoted.

“I am pleased, personally the game went well for me and most importantly we kept a clean sheet but this is a chance for me to start again.

“It is good to be getting the chances, I have been working hard and I have been rewarded with an appearance today,” said Robertson.

Pleased to be back involved in the first team fold, the former Sheffield United man is ready to take his chance now in the starting line-up.

The towering number five was introduced in the 35th minute and put in a commanding performance alongside the ever present Bailey Wright to help North End record a clean sheet.
