Robinson expects difficult Wycombe test

20 January 2022

Stephen Robinson is expecting a tough test from league leaders Wycombe Wanderers at the weekend.

The Shrimps welcome the Chairboys to the Mazuma Stadium on Saturday looking for revenge after the 4-3 loss they encountered earlier on in the campaign, and Robinson says they are one of the best teams they have faced this season. 

“The crowd was great again [on Tuesday], the games don’t get any easier at this level, I think out of the teams we have faced this season, Rotherham and Wycombe were our two biggest challenges,” he said. 

“We went 2-0 up against Wycombe last time out, so we have proved that we can play against them, we competed against them but they are a tough, tough side to play against. 

“They are different to Wigan, they will be getting balls into our box at every opportunity, they go a little bit more direct and they are very good at what they do.” 

Robinson also confirmed that defender Greg Leigh suffered a slight knock during the game against Wigan Athletic in midweek, but is hopeful that the Jamaican international will be back for the Wycombe fixture. 

“Greg [Leigh] hobbled about for five minutes or so and thought he was okay to play on, which is a credit to him that he wanted to carry on,” he added. 

“He has had something like this before, he’s had ice on it since and after he came off he realised that it was probably the right decision. 

“We are hoping that it is short-term, he twisted his knee as he landed but we are hoping that he will be okay for the game on Saturday.”
