Ex-HUDDERSFIELD Town boss Neil Warnock reckons Mark Robins is the right man to take Town forward next season.
The current manager put one over on one of his predecessors in March, when Town’s 2-1 win at Elland Road hastened Warnock’s departure from Leeds.
But Warnock, whose two-year stint at Huddersfield Town brought two Wembley appearances – the Autoglass Trophy final defeat by Swansea in 1994 and League I play-off final win over Bristol Rovers 12 months later – bears no grudge.
And the 64-year-old, who says he could have returned to Town following the departure of Lee Clark in February 2012, would be more than happy to see the club at the top end of the Championship.
“There was an opportunity at the time. It was something I thought about, but I decided both of us were better off going in other directions,” said Warnock, who took Notts County, Sheffield United and QPR to promotion from the Championship.
“I like (chairman) Dean Hoyle and his wife and there are a lot of people still behind the scenes at Huddersfield from my time there, like (secretary) Ann Hough.
“It’s like a family, a fantastic club. Hurt one you hurt us all. Huddersfield Town are still a very special club to me and I was rooting for them to stay up on the last day of the season.
“I was in a television studio and it was nerve-wracking for me. I don’t know what it must have been like to be in the stadium.
“I rate Mark Robins, and Dean Hoyle is as good a chairman as anyone will get. I am sure they will make a great partnership, and I will watch Town's progress from afar.
“Town need a decent start, but it helps so much when a club is stable. Mark Robins has a supportive chairman and they have all the right ingredients.”
