Sturrock told the club's official website: "They are a good footballing side. They have got foreign players that have come in and have adapted very well to the Championship, which is sometimes difficult.
"He (Robins) has done a good job. They look a bit fitter and, looking at Prozone, they are running a bit further. There is a bit of team spirit about them as well.
"They have added quite a lot of players and used the loan market very well."
