Roberts trained at many clubs in his youth career and almost quit football overall until his uncle persuaded him to join local side Hayes, where he proved a fantastic success. This lead to a move to Wolves but failed to make an appearance for them.

The 34-year then joined Bristol Rovers where he enjoyed the best goalscoring time of his career, scoring 38 times in 78 games. This earned him a move to West Brom for a record 2m fee. However, injury problems affected him there and after four years, he moved to Championship side Wigan.

After forming a formidable partnership with Nathan Ellington at the JJB Stadium and making a League Cup final after scoring the winner against Arsenal in the semi-final. In July 2006, Roberts then moved to Blackburn Rovers, where injury again affected his start at Ewood Park.

He then found himself in and out of the team for the next few years and was keen to be playing first-team football in the final years of his career. This lead to his move to Reading on January 2012 for an undisclosed fee, scoring his first goal against Bristol City on his debut.
