Australian Football: Robinson refusing to give in

The pressure is mounting on Western Sydney boss Carl Robinson after the Wanderers suffered a 3-0 defeat against bottom-of-the-ladder Brisbane Roar on Saturday.

Wanderers are priced at 6/5 to finish in the top six of the A-League this season but they have got the season off to a poor start and are in danger of missing out for a fifth season in a row.

Shocking performance

Wanderers were missing captain Rhys Williams who has a long-term injury but Robinson still fielded a side full of talent including Tomer Hemed and Jack Rodwell and should have been good enough to beat Roar.

The home side were also struggling for numbers and had to play midfielders Jay O'Shea and Rahmat Akbari in attack but still managed to romp to victory.

Akbari got on the scoresheet while Nikola Mileusnic bagged a brace and Robinson will be feeling the pressure like never before.

The Wanderers fans have been calling for a change for some time and the knives really will be out after their side slipped to second from bottom on the ladder.

Robinson defiant

Despite the pressure Robinson is refusing to walk away and is instead looking to bounce back against Perth Glory on Wednesday night.

"It's important that you have people who've got the experience of the players you named because they've been there, they've done it," Robinson told reporters after the game.

"They understand that it is a game. They understand what they need to do to try and get themselves out a little bit a hole and we're in a little bit of a hole at the moment and there's no shying away from it.

"You can't hide and blame. That's not the culture that we try and create or gets you anywhere. I'm not going to give in."
