'The away support win us matches'

14 December 2012

Mark Robins hopes the away support will be at their 'usual best' tomorrow...

Coventry City manager Mark Robins hopes the City away support can play a major role when Coventry face Doncaster Rovers at the Keepmoat Stadium.

The Sky Blues have hit their best form of the season going into the match against a Rovers side who are currently 2nd in the League One table.

City has picked up ten points from their last four League matches whilst also progressing in the FA Cup and the Johnstone Paint Trophy.

The City boss believes Doncaster will provide a real test for City who has captain Carl Baker suspended going into the match.

Robins said: "You can look at the league and their points total, and people would say it will be really difficult for us.

"But we are in really good form at the moment and the players are confident going into every match they play at the moment, and that is the main thing.

"We are under no illusions because we know it will be difficult but our away form has been excellent so we want to go there and give a good account of ourselves.

"The way we have picked up and the way we are playing at the moment, we shouldn't fear anyone in the league. The players know they can beat anyone on the day so we are hoping that will be the case this weekend.

"It should be, anywhere we go, 'Coventry City are coming to town and we are bringing it' and make everyone else fear us rather than the other way round."

Coventry are currently fifth in the League One form table and haven't lost away from home since October at Brentford.

With over 600 tickets already sold, the City faithful will be travelling in large numbers once again and Robins believes they are the secret behind the side's away-day success.

He added: "They have travelled everywhere we have been this season in large numbers and I think we have been able to reward them on the road recently.

"It will be a decent atmosphere I am sure and we will take the usual numbers we have took everywhere this season. 

"They are always vocal and noisy and the players really look forward to playing in front of them. It is great to play for supporters like ours and I am sure they will be at their usual best.

"The away support has been brilliant and they win us games, like at Orient and Colchester, as they stick behind us and give as much as the players, if not more."
