Lincoln City striker Theo Robinson hopes that his FA Cup heroics can land him a permanent stay at Sincil Bank.

The former Derby County striker is one of the top goalscorers in the competition this season, as he has played a key role in helping the Imps reach the last sixteen of the competition.

He joined the club in October on non-contract terms after leaving Port Vale at the end of last season.THEO ROBINSON1

His time at Sincil Bank has been a success, with his latest heroics coming with the goal that sealed their 3-1 win over Championship leaders Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday.

That cup form has made him the second top goalscorer in the competition this season with seven goals.

Only Beaconsfield SYCOB striker Oliver McCoy has more, although all of his nine came in the qualifying rounds of the competition.

The Birmingham-born forward is now targeting a longer stay at Sincil Bank and he revealed that there had been talks about a contract, something confirmed by Imps boss Danny Cowley in the aftermath of their historic win over the Seagulls at the weekend.

Robinson said “There have been talks about my contract situation because obviously I am non-contracted at the minutes but I am just taking each game as it comes and we we will go from there.  From the first day I got here I knew what I wanted to do and it is obviously working out on the pitch.

“I do (want to stay) but I am just taking each game as it comes. I wouldn’t mind staying here, we are doing well, the team is doing well but it’s not really about me, it’s about the team.  We know what we want to do now until the end of the season, that is to get promotion”

The Imps became the fifth different club that Robinson has played for since leaving Derby County in August 2013.

The move to Sincil Bank was secured in the hope that he would get regular game time, something that he has achieved in his three months working under Cowley.

And he believes that, along with his brother Nicky, Cowley could soon find himself up against Championship managers on a regular basis.

“I joined just to play games.  I am at the age now where I need to play regularly, week-in, week-out.  The manager has given me the opportunity to do that and hopefully I can keep repaying him with goals and hard work.

“Danny and Nicky could be doing it in the Championship because their attention to detail and the work they do behind the scenes is right up there.  It’s infectious what they are doing.  They want us to work hard so it is good that we are actually doing it.  There is a winning attitude from the staff, all the way through”
