Missed chances cost us says Huddersfield Town striker Theo Robinson
Aug 16 2010 Huddersfield Daily Examiner
THEO ROBINSON rued missed chances as Town were held goalless by Tranmere Rovers and admitted: “We have to find a way of breaking teams down.”
The 21-year-old striker, who made his seasonal debut from the bench, came agonisingly close to a stoppage-time winner in Town’s first home game, but could only watch as his header from Anthony Pilkington’s pass drifted wide.
It added to the frustration for the Galpharm side, who are third in the early npower League I standings and must go to Peterborough United on Saturday minus left-back Gary Naysmith, who will be suspended after an 86th-minute red card for two bookable offences.
“I tried my best to get into the game and get onto the scoresheet,” added Robinson, who came on for Jordan Rhodes after 69 minutes.
“I had a couple of chances and should have done better with the header.
“It wasn’t to be, but I’ll keep plugging away and try to make the most of any game time.”
The former Watford man, who notched 16 times last season, added: “Tranmere worked hard to close us down and frustrate us, and I think a lot of other sides will do that when they come here.
“We have to keep working hard on the training ground and work out ways to combat that kind of approach.”
Peterborough suffered a surprise 5-1 setback at Bournemouth.
