Robinson replaced Derek Adams this summer, after the former boss departed for Bradford City following the Shrimps’ promotion to League One.
Following Adams’ move, many have predicted Morecambe will see an immediate return to the fourth tier, but Wakefield has a more optimistic take.
“I fancy us to do something over the next couple of years,” he said.
“We can compete this season and we have got a manager who has done stuff that no-one appreciates – but they should.
“If Stephen replicates what he did at Motherwell – getting them into cup finals and into Europe through the league with the smallest budget – then we’ll be in the Championship.”
