Concentration Vital For Jack

Robinson wants an end to the errors

Jack Robinson says that concentration is key as Wolves look to end their miserable recent run against Watford in front of the Sky cameras on Friday evening (7.45pm).
The young full-back, who is on loan from Liverpool until the end of the campaign, has tasted defeat in both his Wolves appearances so far - the 2-1 loss against Barnsley at Oakwell and the defeat by the same scoreline to Cardiff at Molineux on Sunday.
Although he believes Wolves' recent performances merit a greater points haul, Robinson concedes that lapses in concentration, such as the ones which led to Fraizer Campbell's headed double on Sunday, are hurting them at the back.
"One mistake cost us a goal in the first half against Cardiff, and that is the kind of thing we need to cut out," says the 19 year-old.
"Then in the second half, it's one of those things again when you're on top and you lose concentration for a split second and it costs is a goal. Carl has made a mistake but he's held his hands up. He'll learn from that and if another cross like that comes in I'm sure he'll make it his own."
He adds: "I think we're playing well, we just can't get the results at the moment, but I'm sure that if we carry on working like we have been doing during the games, results will come."
Despite a lacklustre first half display against the league leaders, Wolves came back into Sunday's game and could have snatched a point had Sylvan Ebanks-Blake not squandered a chance late on.
Robinson continues: "I think we deserved a draw in the end, but it's one of those things where the ball has bounced up, hit Sylvan's studs and gone over the top.
"The games seem to be going against us at the moment. Because of the lack of results it looks like we're struggling, but during the games we're working hard and trying to play football.
"After we changed the formation back to 4-4-2 (at half time) on Sunday, it worked much better for us going forward and we showed the crowd what we're made of, and if we carry on playing like that, results will come."
Robinson, a product of the Anfield academy, was put straight into the starting eleven by manager Dean Saunders following his loan arrival, and says he is determined to repay the faith and the warm welcome shown to him at Molineux.
"The players have all made me feel very welcome and like part of the team straight away, so I've had no problems settling in.
"For the manager to put me straight in shows that he's got a lot of confidence in me," he explains. "If I keep working hard and showing him what I can do on the pitch, hopefully I'll keep playing and help the team get the results we need."
