Mark Robins wants to see his players 'bounce back' against Brentford...

Coventry City manager Mark Robins has urged his players to bounce back from the 2-1 defeat against Notts County.

The Sky Blues travel to Griffin Park tomorrow hoping to claim their second away victory of the season and extend their unbeaten away run to four games.

Robins expressed his disappointment with the Magpies defeat but believes his players can continue to improve by getting a positive result in North London.

The City boss said: “I was disappointed with the result because we had passed it at a decent tempo and created a lot of opportunities throughout the game.

“We actually created more chances against Notts County than we have against anyone else this season so the stats stack up. But I think we still look a little laboured in the final third so we are still looking for people to improve.

“We are giving the ball away to regularly for me but overall, it is generally better than it was when I first came in so we must keep that up.

“Like I say, you are going to win some and you are going to lose some but it is how you react to that and bounce back.

“It is a great time for us in that respect to get another game under our belts because the players want to go out there and put things right.”

The Notts County game saw the second largest home crowd of the season with 11,882 fans at the Ricoh Arena, an increase of 1,425 on the last home match against Bournemouth.

The City boss was happy to see some City fans returning to the Ricoh Arena but hopes the defeat won’t put the support off coming again.

He added: “There was quite a few who came back to watch at the weekend so I suppose that made the result even more disappointing.

“I hope they keep coming as things will continue to improve. I think a lot of fans have seen things improve, especially since my first game anyways.

“We will get the best out of the players we have at this time, we will make sure the style of play improves and with it, results.

“Whilst improving it now, we are making plans for the future to get some help in. What we are doing right now are things which will benefit the club over a longer period of time.

“A lot of work needs to be done and we must make sure we are doing it so that the fans stick with us.”
