INTERVIEW: Mark Robins Peterborough Reaction

The Sky Blues close the gap to one point on the play-offs...

16 March 2019

Sky Blues manager Mark Robins praised his side’s performance following their 2-1 win over Peterborough United at the ABAX Stadium.

Amadou Bakayoko gave City the lead just before half-time, before Bright Enobakhare doubled the lead in the 49th minute.

Louis Reed got one back for the hosts in added time, but it was too little too late for the Posh.

Robins spoke to the local press post-match and said:

“The two goals today from us were outstanding.

“We could’ve had a few more, but let’s not be greedy it’s three points, we move on and we are giving ourselves a chance.

“We’re a point off Doncaster now, who have a game in hand, but there’s plenty of football still to play.”

The conditions were particularly tough at the ABAX and the Sky Blues weathered the storm in more ways than one.

“The conditions were absolutely terrible,” Robins continued.

“Peterborough will feel that the goals were poor, but we withheld the storm from them early on.

“It was a tough game because they’re a good team and they started really brightly.

“I know Darren [Ferguson] well, he likes to go for the jugular, they did that again today, they try and blitz teams and gain the upper hand, but we dealt with it well.

“Burge made some good saves and then we started to get hold of the ball a bit better and establish a foothold in the game.”

There was only one minor disappointment for Robins and that was conceding at the death.

He said: “The only disappointment is that our energy levels sapped in the final stages.

“When they go and get that goal it makes it harder because we should have been in control for the last four minutes.

“It was unfortunate because there were some really great performances all over the park, and we controlled the game.”
