INTERVIEW: Mark Robins looks ahead to tomorrow's trip to Morecambe

The Sky Blues' manager looks ahead to tomorrow's clash in SkyBet League Two...

8 December 2017

Mark Robins side look to continue to put pressure on the top three when they head to Morecambe tomorrow in SkyBet League Two.

The Sky Blues have only lost one of their last nine in all competitions and if results go there way at the Globe Arena tomorrow could find themselves just a point behind the automatic promotion places at full-time.

"Tomorrow is about us," he said.

"It is about our mindset and how we approach games. We have to go and take a professional mindset now into every single game. 

"We want to go out and play entertaining stuff. We want to try and attack teams. Last week against Boreham Wood we had to grind out a period of twenty minutes before we could start to impose our game.

"We can go into this one with a bit of confidence. This is a big game, there is no doubt about that, and a big challenge."

Michael Doyle will tomorrow make the 700th appearance of a professional carrer spanning 19 years and including over 300 appearances for the Sky Blues.

"It is really impressive to get to that number. To do that in your career is an oustanding achievment and the clubs that he has been at have been good clubs throughout with a lot of success.

"He deserved it too, because he has applied himself and continues to do that now at 36 years of age. Doyle is a real professional and you do not get to that number of appearances without being that.

"He is still going strong and he has not missed a minutes training. He looks after himself right and trains properly. He is a winner and he wants to win at everything he does. Everyone should be following his lead.

"Rod McDonald is available. He has gone through all of the protocol that is required after a concussion, which is good. He is a big player for us.

He added: "It has been a good week of preperation, apart from the snow," he said with a laugh.

"Saturday was a good performance and we scored three good goals and now we face Stoke City so obviously Premier League opponents, which is something to look forward too but for now we focus on the league.
