INTERVIEW: Mark Robins reflects on the Sky Blues' 2-0 win over Exeter

Coventry take all three points in SkyBet League Two...

23 September 2017

The Sky Blues have made it three home wins on the bounce with a 2-0 victory over Exeter City at the Ricoh Arena.

Mark Robins' side took the lead early on in the second half through a Troy Brown own-goal before Devon Kelly-Evans, in for the injured Stuart Beavon, scored the winner in stoppage time.

"First half it was a little nip-and-tuck and we cancelled eachother out but we had some decent opportunities," said Robins.

"I was pleased with the way we were moving the ball, some of it was a little rushed but we settled down and managed to get on top. 

"I think that we defended reall well first off and we were quick on the counter with a lot of players hungry to get some goals. 

"We were unlucky not to get even more."

Exeter were yet to lose a league game before making the trip to the Ricoh, winning seven of their last eight games, but the Sky Blues never looked in doubt of ending that run.

"We are looking at a team here who are unbeaten.

"I said before this one how good it would really be if we can be the first team to be them, not only that but we have beaten them comprehensibly and kept a clean sheet.

He added: "I was really pleased with the way we attacked, I was really pleased with the way we got men behind the ball, and i was certainly pleased with the result and the clean sheet. Superb."
