Jack On Track

Robinson in good spirits

Wolves defender Jack Robinson is keen to continue what he describes as a 'great' couple of weeks as he lines up against Middlesbrough tomorrow.

The on-loan Liverpool man returned to Compton with a spring in his step this week, after he played in both England under 21 friendlies over the international break - scoring his first goal for his country in the 3-0 win over Romania.

The successful spell with Stuart Pearce's side means that Robinson has been on the winning side for club or country for three successive outings.

"It's been a great couple of weeks," he admits. "Stuart Pearce put me in from the start of the first game of the international break and I ended up getting my first goal for England, so that was a great experience.

"I've had a good week working with the manager and the rest of the England squad, and obviously it's then been good to come back to Wolves after we got a win in our previous game as well.

"It was fantastic to experience winning a game at Molineux - the fans were right behind us and we managed to fight back really well."

Robinson, who at one time was Liverpool's youngest ever first team player, joined Wolves last month to gain experience, and will remain at Molineux for the rest of the current nPower Championship campaign. 

Despite the tough situation he has come into, Robinson says he is grateful for the reception he has received since his arrival, and is hoping to repay the fans' support in the remaining eight games of the season.

"It's definitely good experience for me - if you play for a team that is struggling, you've got to work as hard as you can to turn it around and try to get those results.

"Since I've been here the fans have been great to me - they've shown me real respect, so all I can do is give my all for them and try my best. I love the club, I love being here and I'm enjoying my experience."

Going into tomorrow's game with Boro, Robinson is certain that if the players and fans pull together as they did in the second period against Bristol City, Wolves can extend their current good run.

"We've come off a win, and with the break the team have had time to train and carry that momentum on, so hopefully we can go into the game and give another performance, similar to the second half against Bristol City.

"The fans get behind us all the time, they're vitally important, and if they stick with us we'll be alright."
