Ethan Robson is not only looking forward to the challenge ahead with Dundee following his loan move from Sunderland for the remainder of the season but he is also hoping the experience will help force his way into ‘The Back Cats’ team next term.
Robson was a transfer deadline day signing for Jim McIntyre as he looked to turn around the Dark Blues fortunes in the league and it was one that the midfielder was eager to accept.
Making his debut in the one-all draw with Hamilton but he was forced off after 61-minutes and with an injury and missed the Kilmarnock match a few days later. He made his comeback this weekend in our 2-1 victory over Livingston but was an unused substitution.
Despite his career up North not getting off to the start he would have liked, Robson spoke to his parent club’s website safc.com bout how his move to Dens came around and how important it is for him to be paying first-team football.
“I’m hoping to get some more experience and first-team games under my belt,” said Robson.
“The chance to play in some big games was obviously a big draw because it’s been difficult so far this season having been injured.
“Hopefully the experience will stand me in good stead for the rest of my career and importantly next season.
“I’m looking to play as much as I can now for the rest of season as I have been very unlucky with injuries.
“I know how important it is to be playing men’s football at this stage of my career - it’s what I want to be doing and I can only benefit from it.
“Having spoken to the gaffer (Jack Ross), Potts (John Potter) and Fowl (James Fowler) about loan moves, we agreed this would be a good move for me. There’s a lot of important games coming up in Dundee’s schedule so it will be a great experience.
“It’s been good so far and I’m really enjoying being up there with Andrew Nelson. All the lads have been great with me and I’m really looking forward to the challenge ahead.”
