INTERVIEW: Mark Robins reflects on City's win away at Wycombe

Marc McNulty's late penalty send City home with all three points...

27 February 2018

Mark Robins' side have beaten Wycombe Wanderers 1-0 at Adams Park thanks to Marc McNulty's lat penalty.

The Sky Blues battled hard in sub-zero conditions before McNulty's 81st minute spot-kick gave the 782-strong Sky Blue Army something to celebrate.

"I thought that Dom Hyam and Rod McDonald were excellent tonight", said Robins.

"The whole back-four were really good and the deep midfield two shielded them really well and the two strikers worked as hard as they could.

"It took Tom Bayliss a while to get into the game. He is only a young boy but he has won us the game. Jordan Shipley was outstanding and so was Max Biamou when he came on, and Kyel Reid too, who put some brilliant balls in from the corners.

McNulty's 17th goal of the season put the game to bed with just nine minutes left on the clock, and his manager said that he was never in doubt that his top-scorer would hit the back of the net.

"As soon as Marc puts the ball on the spot he just looks confident. It was the same with Jonson [Clarke-Harris] on Saturday," said Robins.

"We made sure we stayed in the game. We passed the ball well in difficult conditions, but it was well worth while and the supporters again got behind the team and we have given them something to shout about."

Mark Robins' side next face Lincoln City at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday in what will be a vital clash in the battle for promotion in SkyBet League Two, and Robins says that the lads are raring to go for the final run-in.

"It was an oustanding point that we picked up on Saturday with ten-men, against a side who were looking to go third with a win. We had a bad week and lost three games so we have got to play catch-up. 

"The lads have got the bit between their teeth now.

"We are back on track. There is still a long way to go and if we can win the remainder of those then we will be up there."

He added: "I am pleased with the performance and pleased with their effort, but really pleased with some of their play. We want to try and play football. 

"That is four points from two really tough away games now, and now we really have to try and attack Saturday."
