[LNB]"Matty was breathtaking at times," Abbott told BBC Radio Cumbria. [LNB]"He terrorised John Thompson and gave us that extra bit of drive and pace and power down the left-hand side." [LNB]Abbott signed Robson from divisional rivals Hartlepool United in June 2009, after seven years at Victoria Park.[LNB] [LNB][LNB] Meanwhile Ivorian midfielder Francois Zoko, a summer signing, overcame fitness worries to play his part in Saturday's win. [LNB]"He came through a friend of mine who knows the agent who recommended him very well," Abbott said. [LNB]"We hunted him out and sought after him through the summer. [LNB]"We got him in, we worked with him pre-season and it was his honesty that we liked and the way he responded to the work ethic at the club. [LNB]"His ability is very good but we found the right type of person as well, and I think the crowd are loving him here."
