Town cool on record

Huddersfield Town midfielder Anton Robinson is confident his side can bounce back from their shock FA Cup firstround exit and set a new football league record of 43 league games without loss in tomorrow’s  clash with Notts County (Saturday).
The surprise 41 defeat to League Two club Swindon means that Town are now out of all three cup competitions and Robinson realises they must be at their best in order to put things right.
However, Notts County could do their city rivals Nottingham Forest, who also went 42 games unbeaten during the late 1970s, a favour by ending the Terriers’ 42game unbeaten run and Robinson, 25, says his side are aware of that threat.
He said: “We are always mindful of the fact that every team that plays us will have an added incentive to beat us because it would end our unbeaten run, and it would make big news.
“The record isn’t something that the players or the manager think about very often simply because we cannot afford to lose our focus.
“We were really disappointed with the result in the FA Cup, especially after going 10 up. But, anything can happen in that competition and the game just fell away from us.
“They got another two goals, which the manager wasn’t happy about, but we know we can bounce back and put things right in the league by getting another three points.”
Victory against Notts County, who currently lie sixth in League One, could put Town back within two points of leagueleaders Charlton.
However, after County’s 41 FA Cup victory over Accrington, Robinson believes they will be confident of causing an upset.
He added: “I’ve played against them quite a few times and they are a solid team. They will come and try to give us a hard time.”
