Robinson feeling no pressure for Rocks

GLASGOW Rocks guard Donald Robinson insists he can cope with the burden of becoming the scoring star at the Emirates Arena.

The American rookie has shaken off his early struggles to net 25 points in his last two games as Sterling Davis's men have pulled away from the foot of the BBL.

However, with Glasgow's reserves mired in a slump after scoring only six in Sunday's loss to Leicester, Robinson is ready to shoulder an extra load.

He said: "I don't feel any pressure. I'm just doing what I have to do to help the team and I know scoring is one of the main things on me. So I'm stepping up to do that.

"I know I need to be more aggressive. It's been a big transition for me coming here out of college due to the size of all the players. But it was set out to me that I had to adjust and learn."

Rocks captain EJ Harrison is expected to be fit for next weekend's trip to Cheshire despite hobbling off with a hamstring pull against the Riders.
