Training Paying Off - Theo

9 January 2015

Forward aiming high when league football returns this weekend.

Theo Robinson has told that there is more to his game than meets the eye.

The rangy forward has been duly rewarded for his hard work with three goals in his last seven league games.

So what has changed for the Jamaican striker?

“It is the hard work, really,” he said.

“Getting training done and doing some extra afterwards – a bit of finishing etc. – and it’s worked.

“The role that’s been given to me means that it’s up to me to put the work in and help the boys and with that and the training that I’ve mentioned means things are working out at the minute.”

The former Huddersfield Town and Derby County forward is kept “on his toes” however, by the imminent returns of Nathan Tyson and Curtis Main.

“Everybody’s fit now, Nathan Tyson’s back from injury and we’re fit and fighting and ready to go. I have to be on my toes because I want to keep the jersey. If the other strikers are fit then I can’t slack,” said the 25 year old.

“It shows that you have to keep your head down when you’re not in the team and fight for your place when you get in.

“Getting the new boys in and getting them to gel with the team has helped us out in a major way.”

Rovers travel to Oldham on Saturday, looking for a repeat of December’s FA Cup win at Boundary Park, according to the front man: “We played them back in the cup and won 1-0, it was a tough game, a good game and we want to take the performance from that game in to this. We concentrate on ourselves, though, because we’re in good form.

“We’ve got cup and league games coming up which we have to take in our stride and concentrate on ourselves.

“The form has been excellent away from home, so if we bring it to the Keepmoat then that bodes well.”
