INERVIEW: Mark Robins looks ahead to tomorrow's trip to Lincoln

The Sky Blues head to Sincil Bank to face the Imps...

17 November 2017

Mark Robins' side head to Sincil Bank tomorrow for a sell-out fixture in SkyBet League Two as the side look to bounce back from last week's defeat to Mansfield Town.

Alex MacDonald's late strike gave the Stag's all three points last time out but Robins believes that backed by a bumper away following tomorrow, City have a golden chance to make amends.

"We are still all really dissapointed after last week," said Robins.

"Tomorrow we have a really good opportunity to go out there and perform against a really good side. 

"The Cowley brothers at Lincoln have done a terrific job. The supporters are onboard and with them and the club is a really nice story for them and everybody involved.

"They have had some success and they are on the same points as us now, and it all meassures up to be an interesting afternooon.

"We are looking to go there are try and get three points. 

"We have to start cranking up the pressure now on ourselves and everybody else in the division. We are cabable and we have to start showing that."

The Sky Blues still maintain the best defensive record in the Football League and have taken 11 clean sheets already this season across all competitions. 

Likewise, Lincoln too boast a solid defence having conceded just 15, the second best in the division.

"Hopefully, both our defensive capabilities are not a recipe for a 0-0, but we have to go out and enjoy it.

"I think it will be a good game. We have two very different styles. They play a high intensity game where they willl try and pin us in and play the ball into their strikers.

"They have their threats but they have their weaknesses aswell, like every team in the division.

He added: "We are looking to go and have a good away day, and the last away day was Luton, which was a pretty good performance."
