Sky Blues travel to the Cambs Glass Stadium as they bid for their third straight victory in League Two...

After successive victories at the Ricoh against Port Vale and Carlisle United, Mark Robins' side turn their attention to the U's and Shaun Derry's Cambridge side.

"For us we're looking at how we perform and how we can improve. It is really early days but we have to make sure we continue in the same vein," Robins said.

"Tomorrow against Cambridge you have two sides who are looking fairly miserly so far and we want to keep that up and get another victory.

"It's always interesting to see how a team reacts to adversity, we did it against Shrewsbury and came back from two goals down and really should have got something from the game.

"We know we're in a decent run of form and we want to maintain that. It'll be a tough game as they have some good players at Cambridge and well organised."

Ahead of the visit to Cambridge, Robins spoke about his options in defence with Rod McDonald now available after serving his one-match ban against Carlisle.

Tom Davies replaced him in the side mid-week and Robins admitted it is a good problem to have.

"I thought Tom's performance was first class, I thought he deserved his man of the match. Alongside Jordan Willis they were a very good partnership.

"What I've got is a group good defenders and obviously Lee Burge behind them is helping out and making some decent saves at important times,"

He added: "At the moment we have a good group that are wanting to fight and scrap for each other and dig in when they have to. On Tuesday night we managed to pick up a really good three points against a good side."
