ANTON Robinson is set for a spell on the sidelines but could return in as little as two weeks.

It was initially feared that the latest recruit from Bournemouth could have been set for a longer spell on the sidelines, after pulling up with a hamstring injury that saw him substituted after only 29 minutes in the 1-1 draw with Bury on Saturday.

Lee Clark commented on the clubs official website:-

‘We have had some very good news on the injury front regarding Anton Robinson. Yesterday we found out that he had suffered a Grade One tear of his hamstring, which means that he could miss about two weeks of football,’

‘However, today he has come in and we have seen even more improvements. At the moment he could be out for anywhere from a week, ten days to two weeks. It is the best news we could have hoped for and it is only that because he flagged it up early and came off.’

Clark is hopeful of a return for Robinson by the Colchester game and anything before would be a bonus.

This is exactly why a big squad is necessary in this division and certainly Robinson won’t be the only injury we pick up through the season.

Clark went on with a positive note with a message to the fans following the disappointing result and performance on Saturday:-

‘Anton along with all the new signings will be terrific for the Club, unfortunately on Saturday as a group we didn’t produce the football or the performance that we had all hoped for. However, they are still all hugely talented players who will play key roles throughout the course of the season and take us to where we want to go.’

He is correct in what he says but it is he who will be judged on their performance, I am sure that he will have them up and running like a well oiled machine soon.
