INTERVIEW: Mark Robins previews the Sky Blues' League Two fixture against Crewe

The Sky Blues look for their third straight win against Crewe tomorrow afternoon...

29 September 2017

The Sky Blues host Crewe Alexandra tomorrow at the Ricoh Arena as City look to make it three wins on the bounce.

Mark Robins' side sit fourth in SkyBet League Two, and a win could see them jump to second if results go their way.

"As you would expect, the feeling around the place has been good," said Robins.

"The results have been good, the performances have been good and we are happy so far with the victories.

"I think we are creating chances now. Earlier on in the season you could criticise us of not doing that. The first game of the season we created plenty and scored three but after that it died off a little. 

"However, we have lost games against the run of play and we were creating chances then, it is just now we have been able to pick up some good wins.

"Tuesday's was a physical game. I only found out after the game that it was the first time we have won in Swindon since 1964, so that is a monkey off our back. So we are very happy about that."

The Sky Blues' home form this season has been vital to their climb up the table, winning four of the five home league fixutures so far.

"Away from home we had a great following again which is really important. We want to get as many bums on seats as we can and we are greatful of anything that we can get through the turnstile. I think that willl come with results.

"I would love to see the Ricoh full and I think the lads performances are deserving of that.

"We know it is a difficult game tomorrow. They have been on the back of a couple of defeats but they have their own threats. They can be dangerous. We have to make sure we approach this game as well as we can.

"In the last ten games there has been a fair ammount of running done so training this week has bbeen light on the legs,"

He added: "The lads have been really good so far. It has been a really good week and it could be a great week if we can get three points."
