'Can't wait to get started' - Robinson

25 March 2014

City's newest loan signing Anton Robinson wants to help the side get as many points as possible...

Coventry City's new loan signing Anton Robinson has revealed he won't be going through the motions during his time with the Sky Blues.

The 28-year old midfielder joined City on an emergency loan deal until the end of the season yesterday and is expected to go straight into the squad for the game against Stevenage tomorrow.

Robinson has enjoyed a lot of success at League One level having been a crucial part of the Huddersfield team which gained promotion from the third tier in the 2011/12 season.

The former Bournemouth man hopes to use that experience to help the Sky Blues pick up some crucial results from now until the end of the season.

Robinson said: "When I heard about the interest from Coventry City, I knew it would be a good move for me. 

"I have been eager to get back out on the pitch and play some competitive football so I can't wait to get stuck in and play some games.

"I believe I can add quite a lot to the side. I have been at this level before and know all about what is needed to be a success at this level.

"It is a young squad who are very talented. But we are at the crucial end of the season now and we need to get results. Hopefully, I can help get those points."

Robinson helped Gillingham secure promotion to League One last season whilst on loan at Priestfield and was part of the Bournemouth side which got promoted from League Two in 2009/10.

With the midfielder out of contract at the end of the season, Robinson has ensured his effort levels will be at the very top for City.

He added: "Of course, with the situation I'm currently in with my contract ending at Huddersfield, I want to come here and make a good impression.

"It is important for me to get game-time and to come here to play for a team which operates a high-pressing game, that can only be good for me.

"I'm a ball-winning midfielder who plays box-to-box and likes to contribute going forward. I can score goals as well and hopefully I can do that for Coventry."
