Robinson now faces a battle to bring in reinforcements after earlier vowing not to “panic” should Scott leave late in the day.

“I had no intention of bringing anyone else in,” he said. “If James leaves or anybody leaves, it will depend what timing that is. You have to be careful it’s the right person.”
