INTERVIEW: Mark Robins looks ahead to the weekend's trip to Luton

The Sky Blues manager looks ahead to the weekend's game...

27 October 2017

Mark Robins' side make the journey to Kenilworth Road to face free-scoring Luton Town in SkyBet League Two.

The Hatters have bagged more goals than anyone else in England's top four leagues this season and will come face to face with the Football League's strongest defence in the form of the Sky Blues.

For the manager though, fixing the problems in attack are still the main issue going into the weekend.

"We can only look to try and solve the problems that we have got in terms of creating chances," said Robins.

"On the flipside we are still defensively solid and capable at the back.

"You go through spells like this in a season. This is why they call it a marathon and not a sprint.

"Things have not come easy for us and there are reasons for that. Tomorrow will be different because they are top of the league and they will have a go.

"Things change slightly but we have been working on various things this week which will stand up in good sted." 

Vital for City this season, Jodi Jones was substituted early on at the weekend after a heavy blow to the side of the leg leaving Sky Blues fans hoping that he would not be set a long spell on the sideline like his teammate Tony Andreu. 

"Jodi is okay. He is fine. It was just a dead leg on Saturday and he was back in training with us by Monday. We have nothing new on the injury front.

"It is good to have Ryan Haynes back and now it is just Andreu with his long term problem.

"For me he is a miss, a big one. He is now on the road to recovery. His operation is done and he is doing really well. 

"He is a miss but it gives other people opportunities.

He added: "This is an interesting period of our season. We have just go to keep believing and keep learning and do it together as a team."
