Former Watford front man Theo Robinson believes he was never given the chance he deserved at Vicarage Road, writes Adam Newson.

The 20-year-old, who moved to Huddersfield Town for around £275,000 last week, never enjoyed a sustained run of games for the first team and spent most of his time out on loan.

Speaking to the Huddersfield Examiner, he said: "Personally, I believe I am good enough to play in the Championship but I never got the chance I thought I should have at Watford.

"Huddersfield is a big club with a genuine ambition to play in that division, which is where I want to be.

"I want to play regularly and I believe that the club can progress to the Championship, which is something I want to be a part of.”

Robinson claims having former Watford team mate Lionel Ainsworth at the Galpharm Stadium influenced his decision to join Huddersfield.

"Having players like Lionel Ainsworth around has influenced my decision to come here very strongly, because I have played with them and I know the quality they possess,” he said.

“Playing in League One last season opened my eyes to the quality of the division a little bit and I enjoyed scoring the goals I did.”

The striker signed for Huddersfield after a proposed move to Swindon Town broke down. Swindon had a deal in place with Watford to sign the Birmingham-born forward but negotiations stalled.

Last week, angry Swindon chairman Andrew Fitton told the Swindon Advertiser: “We agreed a deal with the club and player but there are shenanigans going on that we have warned certain people about. This is a classic example of agents and greed."

After spending a successful 2007/08 campaign in League Two with Hereford Town, Robinson returned the next season to Watford but found first team opportunities limited and went out on loan again in January, this time to League One-side Southend United.

After scoring seven goals in 21 games, the Shrimpers were keen to make the deal permanent but Southend were unable to meet Watford's asking price.

Speaking to the Southend Echo, Robinson said: "When my loan spell ended I really did think I was going to be coming back to Southend.

"I had really enjoyed my time there on loan and had got on well with the lads and management there but Watford put quite a big price tag on my head and Southend didn't have enough funds to sign me."
