Robinson Relishing Leading The Line

13 February 2018

North End forward Callum Robinson is relishing the opportunity to lead the line against Wolverhampton Wanderers this weekend.

The Championship leaders have sold out their ticket allocation ahead of Saturday’s game, and Robinson feels that big crowds at Deepdale lift the players.

He told iFollow PNE: “A better atmosphere in any ground obviously helps the lads, and hopefully it will be rocking on Saturday, so we can get the points that we all want.”

The Lilywhites were narrowly edged-out at Molineux earlier in the season, but Robinson believes that North End have a good chance to avenge that defeat.

“I think they were in better form then than they are now, and we were away from home.

“Now we’ve got them at Deepdale and they’ve had a few slippy results, so hopefully we can punish them when we get the chances.”

Robinson has been playing in a more central forward position over recent games, something that he hopes he can continue.

“It’s been good. I’ve really been enjoying it. With my back to play, it wouldn’t really be my strength but in recent weeks I’ve been as strong as I can up there when holding it up.

“I’ve got a little bit more freedom, I can pull out wide if I want to, and it’s been working for the team recently, so we just need to keep up with that.”

Saturday’s game against Wolves will be the first of two big games in just four days for Alex Neil’s side, with the team travelling to Aston Villa next Tuesday.

“We have to be prepared to beat the big teams if we want to get to where we want to get to.

“It’s going to be hard obviously. Wolves are flying and potentially going to win the league, and Villa are in really good form and now up to second.

“I think what we’ve got in the changing room at the moment – the spirit, the hard work and the pressing – means we’ve got a lot going on here so I wouldn’t not back us.”
