Robins: Exits won't open door

Mark Robins says recent departures from Huddersfield Town do not mean that he is in a position to be able to add.

Mark Robins: Looking for new recruits, but might have to make do with what he ha

Kallum Higginbotham is the latest to head through the exits at the John Smith's Stadium, with the forward having linked up with Partick Thistle on loan.

Jordan Sinnot and Chris Atkinson have also been allowed to leave on short-term deals - to Bury and Tranmere Rovers respectively - freeing up space in the Terriers' ranks.

Robins is, however, keen to point out that there is no guarantee that fresh faces will now be drafted in.

He admits the club are looking for potential recruits, but concedes they may also be moving a few more younger professionals out in an effort to get them important minutes game time.

Robins added: "Some of them need to be playing regular games.

"Kallum going doesn't necessarily mean another playing coming in.

"We're always looking, but there's nothing immediate in the pipeline. However, it's a fluid situation."

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.
