Sky Blues boss wants good run to continue in JPT against Sheffield United

Coventry City boss Mark Robins says he is looking at Tuesday night's home Johnstone's Paint Trophy clash with Sheffield United as another opportunity to breed an ever increasing confidence among his squad.

The Sky Blues host the Blades in the competition's regional quarter-final at the Ricoh Arena but Robins said he would approach the game like he would any other as City look to further improve a record which has seen them win six games from their last eight.

"We're on a good run at the moment. We've won six and drawn one from the last eight games so there is plenty of confidence among the players but we are looking at this game as another opportunity to get another win and breed more confidence because we want to win every game we play," he said.

"I've got more options available to me for tomorrow night which is good but the players that played in the FA Cup on Saturday all put in decent performances and staked a claim to retain their starting spots which is great from my point of view.

Robins added though that he would be under no illusions as to the task his team will face when Danny Wilson's side re-visit the Ricoh where their earned a point in the league earlier this season.

"I played under Danny at Bristol City so I know him well. He's an experienced campaigner who will look at the game and try to affect it to make sure it runs his way.

"I saw them at the weekend and in their last round win over Notts County which they won at a canter. They've got alot of options with players like Matt Hill who I had at Barnsley so we know where their strengths are. We will just go out and give it our best."
