ADAM CLAYTON believes returning striker Theo Robinson has given the squad a lift.
Robinson, 24, arrived back at the John Smith’s Stadium on Friday eager to score the goals needed to haul Town away from the Championship danger zone.
Robinson was a popular figure on and off the field in his two years under Lee Clark but his stay at the club didn’t work out and he left for Millwall in January 2011.
Now back on loan from Derby for the rest of the campaign, Robinson is tipped to make an impact.
Midfielder Clayton said: “I didn’t know Theo but he has cheered everyone up and given the whole squad a lift.
“We saw from the reception he got that Theo is a crowd favourite and he has looked sharp in training.”
Robinson came off the bench against Ipswich but hasn’t started a game in almost two months and may need a little time to come good.

Clayton worked as hard as anybody on Saturday and showed genuine glimpses of quality in how he retained possession and how he picked his passes.
Town showed in patches, particularly in the first half, how new manager Mark Robins wants to play his football.
Some of the interchanges were not those of a side devoid of confidence and Clayton said: “The gaffer wants to play football and that’s how I want to play the game.
“Hopefully we will have the confidence to get the ball down and play.
“The pitch isn’t the best for passing the ball but it’s the same for both sides.”
Clayton felt Town deserved to win Saturday’s game and should have taken all three points.
