INTERVIEW: “There Is A Process We Are Going Through"

The Sky Blues boss talked about the process the Sky Blues are going through...

15 February 2019

Sky Blues boss Mark Robins is looking ahead to the weekend’s fixture with Walsall, as his side look to build on last week’s win against Rochdale.

City ended a run of results without a win with a dominant display at the Crown Oil Arena, a performance which mirrored that of previous games.

This weekend Robins’ side will take on a Walsall side looking to pull themselves away from danger, having slipped towards the wrong end of the table.

The City boss has been impressed with what he has seen in training this week, with the fixture against the Saddlers approaching.

He said: “Things have been lively and bright, I was really impressed with the training yesterday, so the lead up to the game has been really good.

“We’ve just got to finalise the preparation today and look forward to playing in a home game and get another three points.

“I’m pleased with the way things are going, what we are trying to do is good and the way we are playing, the processes we go through will take time.

“I enjoy watching us play, it's enjoyable to watch and a good way of playing and a brave way of playing.”

Following the win against Rochdale, Robins admitted he had spoke to a supporter about the style of play the manager has implemented at the Sky Blues.

The manager explained the exciting football which City are playing at the moment will help the Sky Blues push on in League One and they will reap the rewards in the future.

“I spoke to a supporter the other day that said it was brave and said we could easily stick a big man upfront and go long, but that isn’t the way we want to play, we will win more games eventually doing it this way.

“There is a process we are going through, the players are being brave and last week it was a tough place to go to in Rochdale and with the playing surface against a side we haven’t beaten for a long time, I think it was eight attempts and to get the win in the manner that we did was excellent and some of the football we played was brilliant.

“There is a method and a way of going about things that we will continue. When you are going through that period people have to understand it because it is very easy to look at the run of results, we had that weren’t great and I understand that.

“At the start of the process I said we are going to have to take some on the chin because we have to get to a point where those results will start to improve and turn, and now everyone understands the way we are going about things.”

The Sky Blues have created the sixth highest amount of chances in all England’s top four divisions as of the end of January and the highest in League One.

Robins told how he is enjoying what he is seeing from his side and that ‘wins will come’ as the process continues.

“Something which is important for the fans to understand is that there is a process we are going through and the supporter I was talking to said he got it at Rochdale.

“He said he was just a supporter, and this is what I see, but I saw what you are trying to do which is encouraging for everybody.

“We have got to educate everyone, this is the way things are going and this is what we are doing, we have to enjoy the process and even though sometimes results are going against us, what is happening is we are creating performances which are similar in type and quality and we have just got to improve that and the belief will come.

“The wins will come, so we have to keep the belief from everybody, but this is the right way to go about things for our football club for a sustainable and successful future.

“From my point of view, I am enjoying what I am seeing and the fun they are having and look like they are enjoying what they are doing.

“I am happy with the way things are going and the result last week helped and the performance the week before was better than the result but almost there.

“Away from home a good result and at home a good performance where we gave a last-minute goal away, so we are almost there. We have to make sure we continue in the same vain and turn the results around. “
