INTERVIEW: Mark Robins on the Sky Blues' encounter with Exeter City

City welcome table-topping Exeter City to the Ricoh Arena tomorrow...

22 September 2017

The Sky Blues welcome Exeter City to the Ricoh Arena tomorrow afternoon looking for their third straight win at home...

The visitors sit top of the League Two standings, three points clear of Notts County having yet to lose a game so far this campaign.

Robins admitted Saturday will be a good indicator of where his team is at.

"It is a good challenge, a good opportunity. At this stage of the season they have been the form team and I think this week represents a good chance to see where we're at as a team," Robins said.

"We think we're ready for this game. Training has been really good. I say that fairly frequently but the intensity has been good and the quality in there has been exactly what we've been wanting.

"It's a great game at this stage of the season to try and be the first team to beat them."

Despite defeat in the last outing against Cambridge United, Robins took positives from the chances created throughout the contest.

"We had twenty-four opportunities on goal and that is something that has clearly got to improve. I think had it been the other way where we had not created chances there would have been concern.

"We were playing against a side who had the second best record to us at conceding goals and chances, so we were really unfortunate not to take some of the chances we did create,"

He added: "The reaction from the supporters at the end helped put the result behind us because it was a good reaction, even in defeat. That will certainly help going into the game tomorrow."
