The Terriers have consolidated their position within the Sky Bet Championship, with safety secured two games from the end of the campaign.

Attention can now turn towards recruitment plans and addressing areas of weakness.

Robins believes his squad would benefit from an injection of older heads, with second-tier know-how vital to any side looking to remain competitive at that level.

He is also aware of the need to continue building from within, with greater emphasis being placed on home-grown talent, but hopes he will be given the freedom to add where he sees fit.

Robins told the Huddersfield Examiner: "We have two important games remaining, but we can also start to plan in earnest for next season.

"We need some real quality Championship experience to go along with what we already have in the building.

"We want to promote from within, but I also want to bring in the right people to give the players who have done very well at times this season that help moving forward.

"We can now look to do one or two things we couldn't do prior to getting those three points to seal our place in this division.

"It's taken us too long to secure safety, and we have to try to stop that happening again."

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?
