ROBBO ON KEWELL ROCKET

Paul Robinson acknowledged it was a special goal that separated the two sides at Anfield on Saturday.

Paul Robinson acknowledged it was a special goal that separated the two sides at Anfield on Saturday.

The goalkeeper feels the boys did well and matched Liverpool for long periods in what was a closely fought encounter and it took a rasping volley from his former Leeds teammate Harry Kewell to break the deadlock and secure the points for the home side.

"We didn't get what we deserved," reasoned Robbo. "We played very well, Liverpool are a difficult side to break down who got their goal and defended well from there.

"He hit it absolutely clean as a whistle and it went straight past me - I don't think I would have saved the replay!

"There are a lot of the Leeds lads scattered around the Premiership and I've got my work cut out not to let any of them score.

"We are pleased with the way we played and disappointed not to get something from the game. That is where we're at these days, we've come to Anfield and were very unlucky not to take something. We can take a lot of heart and credit from the performance."

Robbo went on to admit that three away games on the spin was always likely to be a challenging proposition and he will be happy to tread the White Hart Lane turf again next time out against Aston Villa.

"It is difficult, but we've got Aston Villa at home next and hopefully I can keep my knee in tact this time and we can get back on the winning road."
