ANTON ROBINSON reflected on his first Town goal and beamed: “I’m ecstatic!”
The 25-year-old substitute pounced 11 minutes from time at Huish Park to give Lee Clark’s side a precious 1-0 victory against League I’s bottom club.
“I was in the right place at the right time and I’m ecstatic,” said Robinson, who is now settled in the Huddersfield area with his young family.
“It was great to be able to celebrate with the fans behind the goal and with my teammates and, hopefully, there will be many more goals to come.
“That’s what the coaching staff think I’m capable of and they have me working on finishing all the time.
“It would be great to pop up with some more goals, but I’m very happy with my first one, especially as it helped us to get the win.”
So how did the goal come about?
“I saw Scott Arfield cut inside and I made a run so that he could play me in,” explained the former Bournemouth midfielder.
“He didn’t slip me through but decided to shoot instead and the keeper made what looked a good save to start with.
“But Lee Novak to a touch on the ball and directed it to me and I was there to put it into the net.”
Robinson, who replaced Damien Johnson on 72 minutes and will be hoping for a chance when Town look to equal the Football League record of 42 games unbeaten against Walsall on Saturday, added:
“I was delighted to get off the mark for the club, obviously, but to come away to Yeovil and return with three points makes it a massive win for us, and that’s the most pleasing aspect.
“Yeovil made it very difficult for us, so we have to be very happy with the way everything went in the end.
“It shows that with this team, we are prepared to graft for our just rewards, and that’s a very important quality to have.
“At times in previous games we don’t think we’ve got what we deserved, so maybe this was one of those days where it went our way.
“All the lads are keen to maintain this great run we are on and, when we don’t quite perform like we know we can do, that’s when you need to rely on your hard graft and the teamwork that we can produce.”
