Uk news Robinson backs Brophy and Main to solve St Mirren's goalscoring problem PremierLeague-News.Com
PremierLeague-News.Com - The Saints manager can't wait to call on the two strikers as they continue their return from injury.
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Stephen Robinson believes St Mirren already have the answer to their goalscoring problem in the building – they just need to get them fit enough to show it on the park. Having failed to net against Arbroath and Airdrie in the Premier Sports Cup, the Buddies lack of a clinical edge came back to haunt them yet again in their Premiership opener against Motherwell last Sunday. Despite creating numerous chances the Saints simply couldn’t find a way past an inspired Liam Kelly, meaning they walked away from a game they dominated empty-handed. Ahead of today’s trip to face former boss Jim Goodwin’s Aberdeen, Robinson revealed strikers Curtis Main and Eamonn Brophy will feature at some point at Pittodrie as the Paisley duo continue to recover from their respective injuries. The St Mirren boss feels the forward pair can answer the club’s call for more potency in the box once they’re back fighting fit. Robinson told Express Sport: “Jonah Ayunga has been excellent, scoring four goals in five games which I don’t think has been done for a long, long time at St Mirren. "Eamonn Brophy and Curtis Main have had injury problems which has meant I’ve only been able to use them sporadically so far since I came in. “But they’re coming back up to speed and that should give us more options. “Players can become better players in the eyes of fans, and managers, when they’ve been out for a while and the team hasn’t been getting results. But we know what Eamonn and Curtis can bring. “Curtis has a physical presence and can score, while Eamonn is the most natural finisher at the club. He scores non-stop in training. “They had an hour in a bounce game against Ayr in midweek and, while they’re not quite 100 per cent, they could both feature at some stage at Pittodrie.” Read More Related Articles St Mirren warn supporters who set off 'life-threatening' pyrotechnics they'll be banned from SMISA Stadium Both Robinson and Goodwin have overseen major overhauls of the squads they inherited earlier this year, with both clubs hoping to push into the top six come the end of the season.

. Robinson said: “Aberdeen should be competing for the top six, given the squad they have and the size of the club. “But there are small margins between most of the clubs in this division. We dominated the game against Motherwell on Sunday and still lost. “One of the advantages of having worked down there with Morecambe is that I know that market and a lot of the boys Jim’s signed. “Anthony Stewart was excellent against us on numerous occasions, but I believe that Aberdeen have done a lot of good business. “They’ve spent a lot of money and fair play to them. It’s going to be a tough game because they have individuals who can win matches on their own and you need to be aware of that. “But I believe if we’re as organised and disciplined as we were against Motherwell last weekend then we can cause them problems.”

Robinson added: “We have to be ultra-cautious with Mark because he was out for a while after a similar problem at Motherwell last season. “He’s feeling a lot better now, but there are certain protocols you must follow in these situations.
