Paul Robinson is confident Havant & Waterlooville can use the momentum gained from back-to-back wins to climb clear of danger in the Vanarama National League., report Portsmouth News

The experienced defender is in no doubt that the Hawks are up for the fight. He believes the squad have shown in the last week that they have what it takes.

Successive wins against Maidenhead United and FC Halifax have taken the Hawks out of the bottom four. Robinson insists this has given the whole squad a huge lift.

He reckons the team are taking on board the lessons learned in the opening three months. This includes showing the greater physicality demanded at the higher level. Earlier in the season the Hawks struggled when defending from corners and free-kicks.

Against a big physical Halifax side they didn’t allow that to happen. He feels the win against FC Halifax can prove to be a big turning point.

Robinson said: “Beating Halifax was a big result for us following on from our big win over Maidenhead. It helps us build that little bit of momentum.

“We started the season fairly well in terms of performances but the results didn’t always reflect this.”
