INTERVIEW: "We Have To Embed A Style"

City travel to Luton tomorrow at midday...

23 February 2019

The Sky Blues head into this weekend’s fixture with Luton Town looking to make it three wins on the bounce in League One.

City have overcome Rochdale and Walsall in their last two meetings and now look to take the scalp of the current league leaders, in the form of Luton.

The Sky Blues have been turning their performances into results in recent weeks, something which hadn’t been happening in previous games.

Mark Robins believes City need to continue what they have been doing in order to ‘embed a style of play’ similar to how tomorrow’s hosts have done.

He said: “Wins don’t do any harm for the belief that is the important thing.

“We have to embed a style of play, we have to do that, it is what Luton have, a style of play and a way of doing things, which they have done for so long it has become second nature.

“We are almost there. We played last week but that is coming up against a Walsall team who are in a different head space to Luton.

“Luton are top of the league, where they will feel the pressure as the games run out, the game is on Sunday so if results go Barnsley and Sunderland’s way tomorrow then it adds more pressure to them.

“So, let’s see how they handle it, but I want to go and show what we can do, it is a live TV game and a chance to take a scalp from a team that hasn’t been beaten for 20 games.”

Picking up back to back wins and clean sheets in the process has helped boost the confidence of the Sky Blues, who had gone on a run without victory.

City will look to keep pace with those above them in League One at the moment this weekend and hope to keep the results matching the performances.

“The players are in good head space, the performance levels have been really good, the results haven’t matched the performances a lot of times.

“When we haven’t won games, we have been the better team, when we have drawn games, we have been the better team.

“We have made mistakes and not taken chances, but we have created an unbelievable amount of chances, so can we do that against a team flying high at the top, if not it gives us an idea of what we need do.”
