Robson: Results are main priority
The Boro midfielder has endured a dismal start to the season at club level, which has seen the Teessiders take only 11 points from 10 Championship games.
Robson was sent off in the 2-2 home draw against Portsmouth on Saturday which increased the pressure on Boro boss Gordon Strachan, but this week the former Celtic player has swapped the worries of club football for Scotland's double-header against the Czech Republic and Spain which starts with the game in Prague on Friday.
Craig Levein's side took four points from their first two games against Lithuania and Liechtenstein without reaching top form, a theme which Robson will gladly see continue.
"The main thing is the points," the former Celtic and Dundee United player said. "I don't want to speak about club football but we have been performing well in some games and coming away with nothing. We have been very unlucky in a lot of games and it's so frustrating.
"You would rather maybe not be performing well and taking points from games. I thought we dominated the game in Lithuania, I didn't think we were under any pressure at all from them.
"Maybe we weren't at our best in the Liechtenstein game but we ground the result out and got the three points which is the most important thing and hopefully that will stand us in good stead for the next game."
Robson refused to look ahead to the Spain game next Tuesday at Hampden, maintaining that Scotland have enough on their plate preparing for the game against the Czechs, who lost their opening Group I game at home to Lithuania.
"The Czech Republic game is the one that we want to concentrate on at the moment, that is massive for us," he said. "The game against Spain will come around the corner but no one is thinking about that. The Czech Republic might not be the force they were five or six years ago but they are still a good outfit, make no mistake about that.
"They are full of good players, some of them playing in the Premier League. They have (Arsenal midfielder Tomas) Rosicky, and they have a top goalie in (Chelsea's) Petr Cech. And every international team is fit, strong and organised, that's a given these days.
"So we know it's going to be tough, and we have to make sure we are right on the night. We need to make sure we go there and play well, put them under any pressure that we can and keep the back door shut and you never know what might happen."
Robson was one of the few who got pass marks against Liechtenstein when he came off the bench to fire Scotland up and it was his corner which led to Stephen McManus' injury-time winner.
Despite Lee McCulloch suspended and Paul Hartley injured, the midfielder still is not certain of a start in Prague but he insists the team is the most important thing.
"It's a squad game," he said. "We are all in it together. When I started against Lithuania, there were good players not playing that night. We are all good friends and all want to do well and the most important thing is that whoever isn't picked has to support those who have been picked.
"If I can get a goal, make a goal, be involved, whatever, then great but as long as Scotland come back with the points I don't care if I'm sitting on the plane and I haven't even touched the ball."
