Speaking about the win, Robins told the media: “I thought we played some good stuff but it couldn’t be pretty on that pitch.

 
“The three points are brilliant. We didn’t take a point off them last year but we’ve taken four off them this season and that just shows you the steps forward we have taken.

“And I thought it was a really good performance and clean sheet.
"We played well and stood up to them. I said they ‘old manned’ us last year and we have got a younger team this year, so I am pleased with the way they handled it and handled themselves.
“We could have had a second goal. The players are adamant that the ball never went out totally but it was a great ball in and great header and that would have been justice, getting two goals, and in the end it could have been three to put the icing on the cake.
“Not being greedy, I thought it was a really good away performance on a difficult surface. It was difficult conditions as well because the wind got up.

“We had a shot early on but yes, the goal was the first on target. There were very few goal mouth incidents in the game but it’s difficult enough trying to get box to box and pass the ball on the pitch in the conditions.

“We were working hard to get openings for ourselves and we had a spell towards the end of the first half and the start of the second half they got on top because we were wasteful with some of our passes and positionally we weren’t quite at it.

“But I am nit picking there because it was a terrific performance.”
