Vital Quotes:

'It gives us a problems. Robbo is a player who can play in a few different positions. I will be looking for players that can play where he can play. We have to make sure we have cover.

'Ideally we will get someone similar to Robbo who can play in a few positions but they are not easy to get. So maybe we will have to get someone who can play just one position.'
