We’re Still In Touching Distance Says Robinson

5 April 2018

North End forward Callum Robinson feels that a lot could still chan in the league as the Lilywhites charge towards the end of this season.

PNE sit just three points outside the Play-Offs with 60 points as they go into the final six games of the campaign still hopeful of being in the mix for a spot in the endf season promotion mix-up.

With a tight schedule of three games in seven days against Reading, Leeds United and Queens Park Rangers ahead, Robinson made it clear that anything can still happen in this division.

Speaking to iFollowPNE, Robinson said: “Other teams have got to play each other, we’ve still got to play Sheffield United who are around us in the table.

"There’s still a lot to go on in the league 100 per cent and we know that. We’ve got some big games to take advantage of.

“Obviously, it’s annoying with the last two results, we have done really well this season and haven’t lost a lot of games. It’s annoying that the two losses have come at such a crucial time.

“We’ve been fortunate a little bit that the results have gone our way, but we don’t really want to look at that too much because you start getting annoyed at the same time thinking where we could’ve been had we won the games.

“It helps that they have gone our way and we’re still in touching distance of the Play-offs and hopefully with these three fixtures coming up this week, they’re all going to be tough, but I think if we can come out with a few wins that we will be right there.”

When North End faced Reading last time out, a Jordan Hugill goal was the difference between the sides back in August. Now, the Royals are under the tutelage of Paul Clement after Jaap Stam's departure.

Robinson admits he doesn’t mind how the results come towards this end of the season, as long as the team continue to play well and stay focused on the task at hand.

“I’d take a scrappy 1-0 for the next six games to be honest. It doesn’t matter how they go in or who scores at this stage of the season.

"It’d be nice to play well and win by a few, but the main thing now is getting results in and getting to where we all want to go to.

“The boys and the staff were gutted over the last two games because it’s those small margins that dictate it at the moment. We need to stay focused especially for these next three games because we need to make sure that the last three truly mean something.”
