INTERVIEW: Mark Robins looks ahead to tomorrow's Legends Day clash with Morecambe

4 May 2018

Mark Robins says his Coventry side are hoping to do City’s former player's proud on Legends Day at the Ricoh Arena.

The Sky Blues face Morecambe at the Ricoh Arena, in a season defining game for both sides on the SkyBet League Two final day.

“I am excited. I am looking forward to the game,” he said.

“The players had a breather at the start of the week and they are in good spirits. All I can ask for Is that they are focussed and looking forward to the game.

“There are plenty of supporters coming to the game, so it will be a nice day. We know it is a tough one and a really tough scenario. They have to get a point and we have to get a point.

“I just want the players to go out and enjoy it. I want them to embrace it. We need to continue that momentum that we picked up last week.”

Both sides go into the game knowing that a point is enough to keep both the Sky Blues in the play-off places and Morecambe in the Football League. However, a win for City and Robins’ side could finish fourth, ensuring a lower placed opponent in their play-off semi-final.

Robins says that while he will have one eye on results elsewhere, the Sky Blues must focus on themselves.

“We might choose to keep up to date with the situation, but we just need to concentrate on what we do. That is really important.

“The players just need to go out and enjoy it. They have a real chance to achieve something. If we can get into those play-off places, then it will be a monumental effort because it has been a difficult season.

“This will be a really tough game against a difficult opposition.

“It is tough to know how they are going to go about their game. Will they sit deep? Will they be brave? I have got no thought other than getting what we need from tomorrow’s game.”

He added: “It is Legends Day tomorrow at the Ricoh too. There are going to be a lot of ex-players and some individuals who have some real history with this football club, and it will be great if we can do it in front of them.

“It's going to be a nice day and hopefully we can put that real graft in and get the result that we need.”
