INTERVIEW: Mark Robins reflects on the Sky Blues' comeback victory over Swindon Town

City come from a goal behind to secure three points at the County Ground...

26 September 2017

The Sky Blues made it back-to-back wins with a 2-1 victory over Swindon Town at the County Ground.

Duckens Nazon's sensational strike proved to be the winner after Michael Doyle drew City level late on in the first half.

Luke Norris had given the Robins the lead after 19 minutes but Coventry fought hard to turn the clash in their favour, before a late red card for Swindon's James Dunne meant that the home side finished with ten men. 

"I am pleased with the manner of the performance," said Robins.

"I thought we were good for large spells. Especially at the start of the game.

"Max Biamou had a really golden chance to score early on and the keeeper made a good save.

"I am beng critical, but we need him to score that. If he scores that we score first and things settle down in our favour. 

"Then there was a couple of nailed on penalties for me. One down either end.

"Plus a number of other notable chances before Doyle gets his goal to bring us level, and then Nazon's goal deserved to win any game."

City's star man, Doyle was instrumental in everything the Sky Blues did on the night, grabbing his first goal in Sky Blue since his return in the summer.

"I thought Doyle was outstanding. I have been telling him to sit deeper but today he was a little more free. Maybe that has been where we have been going wrong," he laughed.

"He obviously saw an opening and wanted to get into the area and he stuck it in really well.

"That was good, and needed. The supporters were magnificent too. They drove everybody on.

He added: "I thought that was a really tough away game and I am pleased to get back to back wins, again."
