INTERVIEW: Mark Robins Previews Trip To Wimbledon

The Gaffer looks ahead to visit to Kingsmeadow...

10 August 2018

Sky Blues boss, Mark Robins told how the mood and mindset is good amongst his side at the moment, as they prepare to face AFC Wimbledon this weekend.

City travel to Kingsmeadow in their first away trip of the season and will be looking to pick a first win of the new campaign.

It will be the first time in over two years since the Sky Blues have come up against Wimbledon and Robins is aware of their strengths and weaknesses.

“The mood is very good.” Robins said.

“The players are staying out doing extra training and doing plenty of work and that’s good to see.

“There’s not too many who are coming in having a shower and rushing off, things are starting to change and that can only benefit the players.

“The mindset for us doesn’t change we have to go about our jobs how we want to and understand what their strengths and weaknesses are.

“We’ve looked at their game last week and they are hard-working team with some good individual players.

“It will be a tough place to go, they’ve took some time adjusting to this level and they’ve done well ever since.”

The Transfer Window closed on Thursday and saw the Sky Blues bring in a host of new faces, as well as some departures.

Assessing the Window, the Gaffer admitted he is still open to doing more business in the Loan Window, which doesn’t close until the end of the month.

“I think we’re moving forward pretty well.

“We’ve had a decent window so far, but I’m still open to doing other bits and pieces, but let’s see how it goes. We know where we are, we’ve moved forward in a different direction.

“We’ve had different types of players coming in and we’ve had some who have left who have been really good servants and others who had a short spell but contributed greatly and we say thanks to them and wish them all the best.

“The ones that have come in need to get ready to work and roll their sleeves up because we have plenty of work to do.”
