Town have lost six of their last eight games in all competitions and there were murmurings of discontent on the terraces during the 2-0 defeat, but Robins has urged the fans to stick by his young side.

"We need the supporters to stay with us," said Robins after his side's fifth loss at the John Smith's Stadium this season.

"I can totally understand their frustration. That's certainly not the way we try to play, the transition between the middle and the final third was non-existent, and when we did get in it was long-ball."

Robins, installed as Simon Grayson's permanent replacement in February last year, steered Town to safety in their first season back in the Championship last season.

"My remit last season was to stay up," Robins added. "This year was to improve on last season. We have done that, but you don't want to rest on your laurels.

"We have players with different abilities and qualities. We have to amalgamate the different qualities as a team which we do brilliantly a lot of the time, but here it has fallen short.

"We have 14 games left and we want to try and pick up as many points as possible.

"The season doesn't end now and we have to play our hearts out for the supporters and give them something to cheer. They will cheer us on in return."
