THEO Robinson has revealed he did not intend to celebrate scoring for Colchester United against his former club Swindon Town – but changed his mind after being booed by some home fans.

Robinson netted twice in the U’s 3-0 win on his return to the County Ground, where he spent three months on loan last season and scored seven times.

The 30-year-old striker returned to haunt his old club - and admits he was surprised to be jeered by some Swindon supporters.

Robinson said: “It wasn’t the case that I had extra motivation until I started getting booed in the first five minutes!

“I said to my family members before the game that if I score, I’m not going to celebrate.

“But when I heard the boos, I thought ‘do you know what, I’m at a new team now and I’m here to play my football and get goals so I’m going to enjoy the moment’.

“One side (of the Swindon fans) were giving me boos and I thought ‘have I done anything wrong?’.

“But football is football - you just get your head down and concentrate on what you have to do.

“It was the perfect start for me really – I got the two goals but more importantly, we got the three points and clean sheet.

“I’ve scored quite a few goals during my career but that second one was up there, to be fair.

“My mate (Frank Nouble) passed it to me, so I take that on board.

“I was cramping up before it but I always knew where I wanted to put it – it was good that it went in.”

Robinson’s impressive two-goal display came on his first Colchester league start since making a loan move from their Essex rivals Southend United, last month.

The ex-Watford youngster is with the U’s until January – but has hinted he could be prepared to stay longer.

“I’m here until January and hopefully more – we’ll see,” said Robinson, who has made more than 400 career appearances.

“If I’m playing football and I’m enjoying it, then that’s the main thing I want to do.

“Since I came in, everyone’s been really welcoming.

“There’s a good group here and I knew that they played good football from when I played against them last year.

“Personally, I know what everyone’s got in the changing room and there are players who were left out of the squad who will probably play in the weeks to come.

“It’s a good squad and everyone’s fighting for every position.

“I’ve probably been out with the players in the changing room more than I have the Southend lot – I know them quite well and everyone gets on with each other, so long may that continue.”
