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.”
