The Sky Blues' return to League Two action tomorrow afternoon as they travel to Blundell Park to face Grimsby Town...

The Mariners started their campaign with an impressive 3-1 win over one of the promotion-favourites Chesterfield at the Proact.

Managed by former Sky Blues boss Russell Slade, Robins is under no illusions that it will be another challenging fixture.

"I am expecting a tough challenge, Blundell Park is a difficult place to go. They had their game called off mid-week so hopefully the pitch will be ready to go tomorrow," Robins said.

"We'll have plenty of fans travelling up which will be fantastic for us. I expect a similar game to the one against Notts County, Russell is obviously their manager now so he'll be wanting to turn us over.

"There is some experience in that side, they've also got some good players in there. We know what to expect, we have to stand up to that challenge and after that get our own game going." 

After the signing of attacking midfielder Tony Andreu yesterday, Robins' has plenty of firepower at his disposal, something he believes will be important throughout the campaign.

"There is competition for places but you can never have enough goals in your side. What we;ve got to try and do is get the best out of each and every one of them and keep them hungry.

"It was a problem last season, certainly the first three games I came in last season. We had very few shots on target and it wasn't until after that we started creating a little more,"

He added: "We saw the start of it last Saturday and for me it is getting that going in our first away performance of this campaign."
