INTERVIEW: Mark Robins looks ahead to tomorrow's clash with Crawley Town

The Sky Blues welcome Crawley Town to the Ricoh Arena in SkyBet League Two...

24 November 2017

Mark Robins' side face Crawley Town this weekend as the Sky Blues look to get back to winning ways at the Ricoh Arena.

City will be without Jodi Jones after the 20-year-old ruptured his ACL in Tuesday night's clash with Stevenage, an injury that could keep him out for up to ten months.

"Firstly it is a blow for Jodi because he has been flying," said Robins.

"He was just getting better and better. For me, it is all about him and how he is and how his recovery goes.

"We will give him the best support he can get. He will be fine. It is a straight forward ACL tear and they are happening all the time these days and we just have to give it the time to heal.

"Luckily, we have got some good players haven't we? They have to step up now. There is a chance for somebody and we have to find a way to work."

Crawley sit 17th in SkyBet League Two and have only won one of the last six, Tuesday's 1-0 victory over Morecambe, and have former Liverpool star Harry Kewell at the helm in his first managerial role.

"I have never met him before so tomorrow will be the first time.

"Good luck to him and we wish him all the best after tomorrow. I'm sure he will be doing all he can to concentrate on us and get three points.

"Everybody seems to be beating everybody else in this division. You are never surprised by a result and the league keeps throwing things up. 

He added: "I think we are a good side. We have been pretty good this season. We may have been masters of our own downfall at times but we can be masters of our own destiny. 

"There are just little bits that need tweaking and the players will be fine. We have got good players at this club."
