THEO ROBINSON is in line for a first start in more than five months at Leyton Orient tomorrow with boss Lee Clark telling Town: “Forget all about the table.”
Clark’s team are one place but five points off the coveted top six, with closest rivals Colchester United having a game in hand.
But the manager’s sole concern is ensuring his side collect all three points in East London, where they will come face to face with Jonathan Tehoue, the French frontman prevented from joining Town in January of last year by his contractual dispute with Turkish club Konyaspor.
Clark is hoping his close knowledge of the player will help when it comes to working out how to shackle him.
At the other end of the pitch, Robinson looks set to partner Town’s 17-goal top scorer Jordan Rhodes after Lee Novak was ruled out for at least a fortnight by a knee injury.
While Clark continues to talk to Leicester City about loan target Steve Howard, Robbie SImpson has a thigh injury and Nathan Eccleston is suspended.
That has opened the door for Robinson, whose last start came at Colchester on October 3.
“We’re not looking at the table, because there’s nothing we can do about the others. We just have to focus on winning ourselves,” said Clark.
