Robertson Reflects On Recent Performances

We Catch Up With The Defender

Chris Robertson declared himself pleased with his displays over the festive period and he's now setting his sights on remaining in the team.

The vastly experienced defender returned to the fold for the 1-0 against Notts County last month, and he also played his part in the 2-1 win away at Barnet on New Years Day. 

"We ended the year on a high and started the New Year on a high so it was good to get the points on the board against two teams who were looking to get points themselves," Robertson said.

"Both games were a battle and six points in a few days was needed. Taking nine points from a possible twelve over the Christmas period is a good return.

"We know we've got to improve our home form now and after the 5-0 defeat to Luton on Boxing Day you are probably thinking 'oh no,' so to turn it around and win against a contender at home was a good result.

"We've been saying all season that we want to give our home fans what we've been giving the away fans, so we'll be going into today looking to win the game.

"No game is easy but we should be beating these kind of teams if we want to get promoted."

And Robertson was more than happy with his own personal performances against Notts County and Barnet, and he's now set his sights on establishing himself as a regular in the team.

"I would give myself a good score out of ten in both games," he added.

"We won both games and as a defender that's what you want to do and it has been enjoyable playing. I've had to wait for my chance to get in the team and I'm excited to be a part of this squad.

"Everyone knows we are in this league to get promoted and at times it hasn't been pretty and it hasn't been easy, but we're still at the right end of the table and we've not been playing our best football as of yet."
