New Middlesbrough manager Chris Wilder has said he will be assessing all players on loan from the Championship side – including defender Jack Robinson.

The left-back (or should that be centre back) arrived at Huish Park on the eve of the National League season with a deal until January 10 – although the Boro website claimed it was a season-long deal.

That move happened under the reign of Neil Warnock who was sacked last weekend and replaced by ex-Sheffield United manager Wilder.

Speaking to the Northern Echo, the new boss said: “First and foremost is to assess the players, whether they are out on loan, they’re here on loan, the kids, every player that’s connected to this football club will be assessed.

“We’ll look to run things absolutely thoroughly to make sure we get it right. Whether we bring players back, whether we keep them out, we’ll try and make decisions on them.

Robinson has started the last four games for Yeovil with the previous incumbent of the left-back position, Jordan Barnett, starting in a more advanced position.

It seems unlikely that Wilder will look to deny the 20-year-old the opportunity to play, unless he feels he improves upon his current options presently filled by ex-Glovers’ defender Lee Peltier.
