INTERVIEW: Mark Robins Looks Ahead To Doncaster Rovers

The Sky Blues entertain Donny at the Ricoh Arena...

26 October 2018

Sky Blues boss Mark Robins is delighted with the confidence his side have at the moment, following four wins on the bounce in League One.

City take on Doncaster Rovers at the Ricoh Arena this weekend, who currently sit one place and one point above Robins’ side in the table.

Following wins against Charlton Athletic, Wycombe Wanderers, Southend United and Bradford City, the Gaffer is looking forward to getting back to action come 3pm tomorrow afternoon.

He said: “Everybody should be ok, off the back of four wins in a row, morale is as high as you could possibly hope for at this stage and we should be looking forward to playing.

“I think when things have gone how they have done, it gives some motivation, a positive reinforcement of what we are doing.

“It is a great thing, you can start to see the personality coming out, which is important, and I want to see that tomorrow.

“We are in a good place and I want us to continue that. A home game after two away games, it’s definitely one to look forward to.”

A win on Saturday this weekend against Doncaster Rovers would see City win five consecutive games for the first time since 1998.

However, Robins admitted that it isn’t something him and his team are thinking about and insisted they must remain grounded.

“It doesn’t concern us at all.” Robins said.

“If you start looking anywhere else apart from our performance, we will start becoming unstuck, so hopefully just stay grounded, we haven’t achieved anything.

“We’ve just started to put a run of good results and whatever they are doing, eating, sleeping and however they are living, just continue doing the same thing.”

It has been almost three years since the Sky Blues last entertained Doncaster, on that day, goals from Adam Armstrong and John Fleck helped City earn a point.

Looking ahead to tomorrow’s game, Robins is expecting a good game, as well as a good crowd at the Ricoh.

“I expect a good game, a good crowd and I expect it to be boisterous and noisy and I expect us to go and enjoy it and have fun.

“It’s a home game after we have just had to away games, where we’ve had brilliant performances when you consider Southend are a good side and Bradford aren’t as bad as their league position would suggest.

“It was a brilliant result at Bradford and 1959 was the last time we won at Valley Parade, so that is good in itself.

“The Ricoh has been good to us this season, we have played some good football their and hopefully we will be bang at it again tomorrow.”
