City boss lauds his side after impressive away win over Stevenage at the Lamex

Coventry City boss Mark Robins said his side were 'brilliant' after they picked up three points with a devastating second half performance in thier 3-1 win at Stevenage.

The Sky Blues went into half time a goal down after a Lucas Akins penalty but second half goals from Richard Woood, Carl Baker and David McGoldrick turned the tide and lifted City into the top half of the table for the first time this season.

"I thought we were brilliant even after we went a goal down," Robins said.

"It seemed like we were opening them at will in the first half but couldn't take our chances and we spoke at half time about being more clinical and in the second half I thought we were excellent.

"We had 74% possession, which for an away team is great, but it wasn't just about us keeping the ball. We used it well and I thought we controlled the game. 

"We dominated but that will be us if we continue to move the ball in the way we did against Stevenage, we will create chances."

Robins also had a special mentionn for the 1,000 travelling Sky Blue Army who filled the away stand.

"I just can't believe the support we had, they made such a big difference in us sustaining our attacks. They were unbelievable," he added.

"The belief is there from the fans that if we keep probing we are going to score goals.

"And I'm pleased with the way we are playing at the moment. Winning is obviously all important in football but it's how you go about it. Its about how we set our stall out for games, not just now but for years to come."
