GOALSCORING hero Anton Robinson hit back at disrespectful remarks in the Notts County programme and revealed the article had spurred his side to victory.[LNB] Cherries got their League One play-off push back on track after Robinson's header and a Danny Ings strike secured a 2-0 win at Meadow Lane.[LNB] Cherries midfielder Robinson admitted his team had been inspired by a cutting critique in County's matchday publication.[LNB] In the section on the away side, the programme stated: Looking jaded, inexperienced and laboured in front of goal have been criticisms levelled at Bradbury's youthful squad.[LNB] Following the win, Robinson revealed the comments had been highlighted and pinned to the home dressing room door.[LNB] He told Cherries' official website: All the lads were really disappointed with what they put in their programme.[LNB] I think it was a bit silly of them as it just gave us extra ammunition to go out there and show them what we were capable of and to put on a performance.[LNB] The former Weymouth captain added: It is hard to believe any club would put that in their programme.[LNB] We all found it disrespectful and it just made us even more determined to go out there and get the three points, even though we were confident going into the game.[LNB] The article also stated: While Championship football was highly sought after by supporters with over-inflated expectations, perhaps back-to-back promotions would have been an overindulgence too far for a club that only staved off relegation to the Conference 24 months previous.[LNB]
