City boss Mark Robins says his side must stop dwelling on past mistakes and look ahead as the Sky Blues enter the final ten games of the season.
Nineteenth placed Crewe Alexandra are the opponents tomorrow, and it has been the lower places sides in SkyBet League Two that City have struggled with the most this season, something Robins is keen to change in the final run-in.
“We want to be positive now and focus on the job in hand,” said Robins
“We have a ten-game season ahead of us. Whatever has gone has gone and there is nothing we can do about it, but what we can do is our very best in the upcoming games.
“There are a lot of tough games left. You can see at this stage of the season that there are a lot of sides fighting for their lives.
“We had a tough game against Barnet last weekend and the we played a very high-quality game on Tuesday. There have been some good performances in terms of what we have been able to deliver.
“We go now to Gresty Road and Crewe Alexandra will be a different challenge. They need the points as well as we do. This is an interesting part of the season.
“Everyone would like to be up at the very top, but football isn’t like that. We need to relax and enjoy the challenges.”
Michael Doyle and Carl Baker have both, in recent weeks, nodded to their final promotion push with Portsmouth last season that saw then win twelve of their final 14 games to charge to the summit of SkyBet League Two on the final day. An achievement that Robins’ says is still not out of reach.
“There is no reason as to why we can’t. It has been done before,” he said with a laugh.
“As always in football thought, we are taking it one game at a time. We have played four and won two, drawing two.
He added: “We have a tough game coming up that we are fully focussed on, so we cannot look beyond Crewe.”
