Callum Robinson is looking for more of the same this Gentry Day away at Fulham, hoping the team can get all three points and help give the fans another reason to celebrate.
In last season’s Gentry Day fixture, goals from Jordan Hugill and Marnick Vermijl gave the Lilywhites the three points and the bragging rights against Bolton Wanderers in a 2-1 win.
While celebrating Marnick Vermijl’s winner four minutes from time, Robinson was pictured donning one of the fan’s bowler hats.
Robinson reflected on the match and is hoping to repeat the result at Craven Cottage on Saturday, saying: “I really enjoyed my first one last season down at Bolton. It worked out really well for us in the end, with the 2-1 win.
“I put the hat on to make the fans happy. Someone must have thrown it down and I saw it and put it on.
“I’m really looking forward to this Saturday and hopefully we can make it another special Gentry Day.
“I think it is nice for the fans to have a day like that and we were really happy we could get the win on that day last year.
“Hopefully we can get a win for all of those who are travelling down this Saturday.”
This year the fans are making extraordinary effort to celebrate Gentry Day with almost 3,000 supporters making the 460-mile round trip.
They are driving, taking trains and some have even organised a boat to take them down the River Thames. Robinson is looking to help fans enjoy the day even more with a win.
“I didn’t know about a boat! It’s good to hear for us boys, that we have got the backing and the support.
“When we are on the pitch hopefully we can deliver for them, make them happy and let them enjoy their evening after the game.”
The Cottagers are one point above North End in the Championship table with a game in hand and the fixture is the first of several key games coming up against teams also challenging for a Play-Off spot this season.
On the match against Fulham, Robinson feels that the strength the team have shown recently, in coming from behind to win against QPR and Brentford, sets the team up well for this weekend.
“We have had a good few games now, getting the points. We have been quiet with our business but getting it done.
“Hopefully we can go down there, you could call it a six pointer, if we can get the result.
“If we can go there and get the three points that would be massive, then onto Derby and Reading.
“We have three big games, hopefully we can get the result and show the belief us guys have got in the changing room.
“If we get three wins that would show our character and demonstrate we can do something this season.”
