Robinson Hopes Performances Entice More Supporters To Games

15 August 2016

Manager Steve Robinson hopes performances on the pitch will entice more supporters down to Park as he prepares his side for Northampton Town tomorrow night.

The gaffer, who has won lost and drawn in his opening three competitive games, praised fans for their support since he landed the job last month.

And now he is looking to put more bums on seats through his attractive style of football. 

He said: “The more performances we can produce like Saturday then the word spreads that we are being competitive, we are showing passion and pride and hopefully that can bring people back and they can stay behind us. 

“The fans have been really supportive and they have seen 100% effort from the players. 

"If you get beat but put in the effort then I can’t complain and I think the fans accept that if you’ve tried your best and runs themselves into the ground for the shirt then that’s the minimum we can ask and that’s what I think will happen here.”

The Cobblers are the visitors to Park tomorrow night and they come into the game full of confidence from last season’s League Two title win.

“They have got a bit of momentum and that can carry you forward at this level,” commented the gaffer. 

“They have signed well, got good players and good management staff so it will be a tough game. 

"I’m looking to find an easy game but I don’t think there are many on the horizon. Everybody is much of a muchness and it’s about who turns up and does the basics well. 

“Northampton will be a big test for us but I’m hoping for our first league win of the season." 

Robinson added Charles Dunne and Calaum Jahraldo-Martin to his squad last week and has his sights set on one more loan signing before the end of the transfer window.

“He’s a striker but we are being dictated by the parent club at the moment,” he admitted. “We just have to wait at the moment and hopefully our patience will pay off."
