Anton Robinson eyes Bournemouth advantage in away leg

Robinson praised his side's character in coming from behind in the first leg

Bournemouth's Anton Robinson hopes the pressure on Huddersfield to win in front of their home fans will give the Cherries the advantage on Wednesday.

The Terriers host the League One play-off semi-final second leg having drawn the first game at Dean Court 1-1.

"If we keep the ball, we can frustrate them and I think their fans will get on top of them," the 25-year-old midfielder told BBC Radio Solent.

"So hopefully the away leg will be a blessing in disguise."

Bournemouth came from a goal down to draw with Huddersfield on Saturday and the midfielder says the Cherries should feel encouraged by their home performance.

"We've got to take positives from the game. We started off the better team and their goal came at the wrong time," Robinson said.

"But it shows we've got great character and great team spirit to bounce back and get back into the game.

"There's nothing in it really. They have some great players that have been in this position and we've got some great players that want to go higher - and hopefully we can do it with Bournemouth."

Watch highlights of the League One play-off semi-final second leg at Huddersfield in a special edition of Late Kick Off this Wednesday from 2245 BST on BBC1 in the South.
