Robins expecting more twists

Huddersfield boss Mark Robins is expecting plenty of twists and turns in the Championship relegation battle after his side were held to a draw by fellow-strugglers Peterborough.

Mark Robins: His side are now a point above the relegation zone

The Terriers twice led against Posh but Darren Ferguson's men pegged them back both times, with Dwight Gayle's 86th-minute goal ensuring both sides ended with a point.

The big plus for Huddersfield is that the result moves them out of the relegation zone and a point above Blackburn.

"It's a point gained and the positive is that we move up the table," said Robins. "We are devastated not to win the game but we fell into the bottom three and we've only been there a week.

"There are going to be many more twists and turns before the end of the season."

Robins added: "In all fairness a draw was probably the right result.

"This was a tough, tough game and Peterborough have been in good form.

"I am not going to be too critical of them at this stage but we have to start seeing games out.

"What happens this season is still in our hands. We have Wolves and Blackburn up next and it's what we do that matters. We don't have to rely on other results."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
