Mark Robins' says he was happy to treat to supporters to a victory after his side charged to a 3-0 win over top of the table Luton Town at Kenilworth Road.

Stoppage time strikes from Jordan Shipley and Duckens Nazon added to Marc McNulty's first-half header to hand the Sky Blues all three points and their ninth clean sheet of the season at the home England highest scoring side.

"That was a perfect away performance," said Robins.

"A clean sheet against the league's free-scoring team, and not only that we kept them to a minimum of chances and we took ours pretty well.

"We have spoken a lot in the run-up to this game about the fact we haven't scored loads of goals and I said that it would not be an issue because we understand what is happening and then all of a sudden we end up getting five or six bodies in their area away from home.

"It was a different game to what we have been used to. There were no sitting bodies behind the ball today.

"Today will do their confidence the world of good and now we have another week to prepare for the FA Cup game."

Luton had their fair share of chances to get back in the game at 0-1. Danny Hylton came close on a number of occasions, but Lee Burge was able to stay strong and maintain yet another clean sheet.

"We had the early goal, then Burge made a solid save us to keep us ahead and then we are leading a couple of breakaways.

"Shipley's free-kick was outstanding and we deserved it. Then the icing on the cake as Nazon breaks away to put away the third.

"The timing of the Shipley's goal was perfect. It took the wind out of their sails. It was outstanding."

He added: "We would have taken a 1-0 win, but a 3-0 win just gives it some gloss.

"The supporters were magnificent today and we are so happy to treat them to some goals that we have not done for a number of weeks.

"We are a decent team and we are still learning. It was a good result."
