Lincoln City striker Theo Robinson reveals desire to stay at Sincil Bank

Lincoln City striker Theo Robinson has expressed his desire to stay with the club, following his winning goal against Brighton & Hove Albion in the FA Cup fourth round.

The Imps ran out 3-1 winners in a well fought game at Sincil Bank. A penalty from Alan Power, an own goal from Brighton right-back Fikayo Tomori and a goal from Robinson was enough to send Danny Cowley’s side into the fifth round of the competition for the first time since 1887.

The Jamaican international, is currently on a non-contract deal at Sincil Bank, and said: “I’ll take each game as it goes. I wouldn’t mind staying and obviously we’re doing well.”

“We know what we wanted to do towards the end of the season so that’s to get promotion but obviously I’ll let the board decide what the next step is.”

While Robinson was keen to sort his immediate future out, he was desperate to savour the victory that saw Lincoln become one of only eight non-league sides to reach the heights of the fifth round in the FA Cup’s history.

The 28-year old forward, said: “I don’t think it’s sunk in yet to be honest. I was looking at my phone just now and I’d got loads of messages but it’s an amazing feeling obviously.”

“We thought we could go on and win the game and the longer it went on and the game was still 1-0, the more we thought we could get back in the game.”

“Our message at half time was to stop the way they played, the source was stopping Goldson getting on the ball and pinging it direct to Glenn Murray which was working a lot for them first half.”

Despite this cup distraction for Robinson and co to think about, they must focus on their National League fixture against Solihull Moors on Tuesday night and maintain their table topping form of late.

The former Derby man said: “I’d rather in the league score as many goals as I can but obviously it’s good to get the goals in the FA Cup but it’s the league that’s important.”

With 6 goals in 17 games for Lincoln City, it will be difficult to see past the newly formed strike partnership Robinson has formed with Matt Rhead at the club.

Rhead isn’t the only one who seems to have made an impact on the striker, Robinson said of the Lincoln team and dressing room: “It’s been good, it’s infectious what they’re doing. You know every day, they want you to take everything in and they want you to work hard.”

“It’s just a winning attitude really from the start and all the way through and we want to achieve something here and obviously each game we’re trying to do that and it’s good that the winning mentality is proven on the pitch today.”
