PAUL Robinson sees no reason why Blackburn Rovers cannot gatecrash the play-offs.

And the in-form Rovers goalkeeper reckons Saturday’s gritty 1-0 win at Reading was the perfect example why.

Robinson said: “We’ve got a good squad here with a good bunch of players and the manager has been given a little bit of time now to create his own squad and his own players.

“I think the 1-0 win at Reading at the weekend just showed the resilience and strength of character that we’ve got here.

“We’ve had a couple of them this season, when maybe we’ve not been the best team on the pitch but our togetherness and our character has got us through games.

“We’re just outside the play-offs and there is no reason why we can’t have a late push.”

Robinson has yet to lose a league match since returning to the Rovers starting line-up after recovering from the blood clot on his lung that threatened his life.

The 34-year-old’s fine form – he has kept four clean sheets in six Championship matches – has led to speculation that he could earn an England recall.

Robinson retired from international football in 2010 but he has admitted he would reverse his decision if Roy Hodgson comes calling.

England boss Hodgson today names his squad for the friendly with Denmark at Wembley on Wednesday.
