THEO Robinson insists all his focus is on scoring goals for Colchester United – and not on his long-term future.

The experienced striker is currently on loan at the U’s from Southend United, where his contract expires this summer.

Robinson is Colchester’s leading scorer with 12 goals and has made a positive impression since arriving from Roots Hall, last August.

The 31-year-old says he is concentrating on helping the U’s with their League Two promotion challenge and is not currently thinking about what will happen at the end of the campaign.

Robinson said: “It’s up to the people above really and go from there.

“All I can do is concentrate on playing football and let that do the talking.

“I am out of contract at Southend in the summer but I’m not really thinking about that.

“I’m just thinking about the present and scoring goals and winning games – that’s the main thing.

“We’re in good spirits and we’re looking forward to the challenge ahead.”

Robinson is aiming to help John McGreal’s side seal a return to League One, this season.

The well-travelled forward has been involved in promotion challenges in the past with the likes of Huddersfield Town, Derby County and Hereford United and is hoping his experience can help the U’s achieve their targets, despite their recent defeats.

“The reason I’m here is for the promotion challenge and from my experiences, I’m hoping I can help the team,” said Robinson, who began his career at Watford.

“It’s important that you believe in yourselves.

“You win some, you lose some but if you do lose, it’s about stepping back up and bouncing back really.

“It’s still in our hands at the end of the day and from past experiences, I’d say you just have to keep working hard, keep smiling and the results will change.

“We create lots of chances, the full-backs, the centre mids and the wingers and other strikers as well and we’re all chipping in.

“It’s a good creative team and everyone’s creating chances for me and it’s up to me to finish them.”
