Robins 'delighted' with Crawley win

Sky Blues boss says City have a great opportunity to capitalise on win over Red Devils

Coventry City boss Mark Robins expressed his delight after the Sky Blues' 3-1 home win over Crawley Town.

A double from David McGoldrick after John Fleck's early opener for City lifts the club to 19th place in the League One table after two consecutive league wins and just two defeats in their last eight.

McGoldrick's brace makes it 11 goals in 15 appearances for the Sky Blues and Robins said that his side are now halfway to they target points total in a week that sees them play back-to-back home games.

"It's that kind of result that makes people look and think that Coventry City have turned a corner but we can't rest on our laurels," Robins said.

I think the lads have put a great shift in and there's been some really good quality in there as well tonight. You could name every player tonight for their contribution. Cyrus Christie looked awesome at times, he was powerful and did really well down that right hand side and Carl Baker is starting to come out of that patch where we spoke about him trying too hard.


"Let's not forget that's a decent side that Crawley have put together. They have a bright and experienced front four and we said this would be a difficult run of games but our confidence is getting better, it's starting to build and we've lasted the 90 minutes better than we have done recently.

"I thought we dealt with everything fine, I didn't rwally feel as though we were under any real pressure and I thought their goal was slightly fortunate as William Edjenguele took a smack in the face just before they scored.

"We've talked about change though and how we are going to get through this period the club has been going through and we've got an opportunity on Saturday that we don't want to let pass us by.

"Scunthorpe have had a good win away at Walsall and we'll look forward to welcoming them on Saturday and getting a good game."
