Robinson returns to training

Luke Chambers believes competition for places under Mick
McCarthy has been the secret to the change of fortunes at
Ipswich.

The Tractor Boys were four points adrift at the bottom of the
npower Championship table when McCarthy, and assistant Terry
Connor, took the reins at Portman Road, but five wins from nine
games has lifted spirits.

Chambers, who signed a three-year contract with the Blues in the
summer, thinks McCarthy’s selection process has had a major
effect.

He told the East Anglian Daily Times: “The gaffer has made no
secret that if you are not performing to your best and not buying
into what he wants, you will be out.

“They have come in with their own ideas and the lads have bought
into them quickly.

“Maybe, people who were possibly comfortable in the team under
the previous manager have found that it is a new start for
everyone.”

The 20-year-old refused to be named as a substitute for the
Scottish Premier League win over Aberdeen earlier this month.

However, Robinson met with senior club officials on Monday to
clear the air and, according to the Jambos, the matter is now
closed.

McGlynn told Hearts News: “I met Scott yesterday and he was very
apologetic for his actions.

“I was extremely unhappy with him and he knows he was in the
wrong.

“The matter has been dealt with internally, the details of which
will remain private.

“Scott is now back training with the first team and we all now
move on.”

Robinson said: “The whole situation was regrettable and I have
apologised to the manager for what happened.

“I just want to concentrate on my football now, work hard in
training and try to prove to the gaffer that I am worth my place in
the squad as we have a lot of important games coming up.”
