INTERVIEW: Mark Robins Looks Ahead To Bristol Rovers Trip

Gaffer looking forward to facing The Gas...

21 September 2018

The Sky Blues make the trip to the Memorial Stadium this weekend and Mark Robins is expecting a difficult game against The Gas.

Bristol Rovers are currently in 22nd place in League One, with just one win in their opening eight games.

City are looking to make it three wins on the bounce, following back to back wins against Oxford United and Barnsley in their last two outings.

“It is not about anything they are doing or done, this will be a really difficult game and we’ve got to be ready for it.” Robins said.

“We’ve got to go there with the same determination as we’ve gone into every game this season and try and pick up the three points, which we always do, but I want us to focus on what we have been doing and continue what we’ve been doing and try and get better at it as we go.

“The pleasing thing is the results have been really good but the performances have been better and we just want to try and keep that going.

“Bristol Rovers had a good win against West Hams U21’s and they’ll have gained a little bit of confidence.

“We are going to down to Bristol trying to gain three points and I’m just looking for us to maintain the levels of performance we’ve had and see if we can improve.”

Along with the Sky Blues travelling down to Bristol will be another sell-out away following, with over 1,100 supporters making the trip.

It is another sell-out for the City supporters and Robins was elated with the backing him and his team continue to receive.

Turning up to stadiums and you have a large number supporting you, it makes a big difference and our fans never let us down and tomorrow will be a big help hopefully towards us getting the required result.

“Hearing about champions league game only getting 40,000 instead of the 54,000 that they normally get. It makes you smile that our supporters are outstanding and up there with the best.”
