Robins: Record means nothing

Huddersfield boss Mark Robins insists his previous record as manager against Leeds will count for nothing in this weekend's West Yorkshire derby clash at Elland Road.

Mark Robins: Not looking back

Mark Robins: Not looking back

Robins was in charge of Barnsley during the 2010/11 season when the Tykes trounced Leeds 5-2 at Oakwell and followed that up with a 3-3 draw at Elland Road and oversaw Rotherham's 4-2 win over them in the Football League Trophy in October 2008.

"Don't say that too loudly," Robins said.

"We go there and this is the next experience of playing against Leeds.

"The last time I was there we drew 3-3 and it was an entertaining game and we won at Oakwell, but it was a long time ago under different circumstances.

"We know that they have got some good Championship experience in their ranks, undoubted quality, but it's about how we perform on the day."

Robins is anxious his side can find some consistency after just two wins in his first seven games in charge.

"There's been a buzz here in general with the change that's gone on over the last three or four weeks," he added.

"There's been a settling down period and we've had one or two good performances in that time and one or two that have been a bit under-par.

"But we go into a game that's a mouthwatering prospect for local people and also the players and management.

"It's certainly one you look forward to in the footballing calendar."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
