INTERVIEW: Mark Robins Reflects On Wycombe Result

The Gaffer looks back on this afternoon's League One clash...

13 October 2018

Mark Robins praised his team’s excellent performance after the Sky Blues earned all three points versus Wycombe Wanderers.

Conor Chaplin’s 82nd minute header was the difference that capped off a deserved win this afternoon.

“We did well, we dominated possession and dominated in terms of chances.

“It just felt like we needed a little bit more tempo, a bit more urgency and the we could get the goal.

“There was a definite, clear way that we wanted to play and we created great openings but then took a wrong option right at the death.

“It was tough though in the difficult conditions.

“Having to play against Wycombe who play in a particular way that suits them, we played against it last year so we were well aware of the strengths that they have.”

The whole Sky Blues outfit performed brilliantly and Robins was quick to comment on his attacking players.

“There were some good performances today, Jordy [Hiwula] was instrumental in everything we did.

“He did brilliantly on a few occasions and then it looks like he needs to slip it into one of the others or slide it into someone for a tap into an empty net, but it’s a really good win.

“Conor [Chaplin] kept plugging away and got his great goal in the end, it showed that you don’t have to be 6ft 3’ to win a header.

“He got his just rewards because he was busy and was working, it just didn’t fall for him quite right on other occasions.

““Jonson Clarke-Harris led the line fantastically well and Luke [Thomas] was also as busy as he always is.”

Robins though was keen to stress there is still far more work that is needed to be done.

“At the end of the day they are working hard in training and understand what we are after.

“But, we’re still not there yet, it’s still way away from where we want to be.

“There were some really good balls into the box today and that’s good for the future because you’re looking for different types of crosses and we’ve got those.

“We just need people to arrive in the right positions at the right time, and that’ll give something for us to work on this week.

“Hopefully I’ll have 22 outfield players to choose from next week which will give me a really good kind of headache.

“One or two will play in the U23s on Monday and then hopefully it’ll give me something to ponder.”
