'I'm getting back to my best' - Robinson
Tottenham goalkeeper Paul Robinson has staked his claim to win back his England place under Fabio Capello, insisting: 'I'm getting back to my best.'
The 28-year-old made a series of high-profile errors earlier in the season and was dropped for the last game of Steve McClaren's reign as England boss - but he feels his confidence is returning.
Against Manchester City in the Carling Cup yesterday, he kept Spurs ahead with a polished performance and a stunning save to deny Darius Vassell.
'I was very pleased with how I played - my form is coming back,' said Robinson.
'I did have a dip in confidence, and it affected my performances a little bit.
'But my confidence is coming back to me now, and I think people can see from my performances that I'm getting back to my best.'
Victory at Eastlands put Spurs into the semi-finals - but they were furious at Didier Zokora's red card for a tackle on Elano.
'I don't think the referee made a good decision. Didier is not a dirty player,' said full-back Pascal Chimbonda.
Spurs have appealed and will find out tomorrow if the Football Association will overturn Steve Bennett's decision.
'Tottenham have submitted a claim for wrongful dismissal in relation to the sending-off of Didier Zokora for serious foul play against Manchester City in last night's Carling Cup tie,' confirmed a statement from the FA.
Zokora would face a three-match ban if the red card was upheld, leaving Spurs with more problems in defence.
Head coach Juande Ramos has played midfielder Zokora at the back, such is the shortage of fit defenders at White Hart Lane.
Michael Dawson missed the 2-0 win against City after suffering a migraine at the weekend - while Ledley King, Gareth Bale, Ricardo Rocha and Benoit Assou-Ekotto are on the sidelines.
However, Spurs have not had much luck with FA appeals recently and were upset earlier this month when Robbie Keane's red card against Birmingham was upheld.
Former Spurs captain Gary Mabbutt, when asked on Sky Sports News whether Bennett's decision was right, said: 'By the letter of the law, yes.
'The referee's opinion was that it was red card. We don't want to see games being re-refereed.'
