INTERVIEW: Mark Robins looks ahead to tomorrow's trip to Meadow Lane

The Sky Blues face Notts County in SkyBet League Two...

6 April 2018

Sky Blues boss Mark Robins believes his side couldn't have asked for a better game to follow Monday's defeat as the side head to Meadow Lane to face Notts County.

City were beaten 2-6 on Monday by Yeovil Town at the Ricoh Arena in a shock result in SkyBet League Two, but Robins says that his side are ready to make amends for their mistakes.

"I do not need to remind the players about Monday. At this stage of the season that was the last thing we wanted to happen," said Robins.

"It has happened. We made some big mistakes and after that, we were chasing them desperate for a goal, and if we had have got that goal we probably would have got something from the game as ridiculous as that sounds.

"Right from the start of the game we just made stupid mistakes that we have not made all season.

"We were on a good run and we have beaten some good teams on that run, let's not forget. We picked fifteen points from the eight that we played.

"We need the reaction that we are looking for, and that reaction is getting back to the form we have in the previous seven games. That is all that needs to be said about it."

The Sky Blues have the chance to do the double over County tomorrow after Jodi Jones' hat-trick on the opening day of the season helped City to a 3-0 victory at the Ricoh Arena, but Robins is wary of the home side's threats

"We couldn't ask for a better game. They are a good side. We played them at the start of the season. Even then, you knew that they were going to be there or thereabouts because they have some talented players.

"They have some good experience in the team and Kevin Nolan has some very good staff. He has done a really good job.

"They have brought in some decent loans. At the end of the day, it is a huge occasion and we are aware of that because we are taking over four thousand supporters again.

"We just want to get back and play. If you fall off a bike you want to get back on it and ride again."

He added: "We have to move past Monday. We have six games left and we go into this game knowing the importance and significance that it could have on our end result and we are looking forward to it."
