INTERVIEW: "Well We Need To Do Some Things"

Robins thinking ahead to the January Transfer Window...

1 November 2019

Sky Blues boss Mark Robins revealed that he has several options when considering a replacement in the side for Fankaty Dabo.

Dabo will be suspended for the game against Accrington Stanley this weekend after he picked up his fifth yellow card of the season against Peterborough United.

With Josh Pask still recovering from injury, Tennai Watson could fill in at right-back, but Robins is still considering who could fill in.

He said: “We’ve got a number of options and a number of alternatives we may turn to.

“I’ve got to look at things this morning again and finalise things, we will start to get things finalised today, but we are looking forward to the game on the back of last week’s performances, all three.

“I think we were unfortunate against MK, unfortunate against Peterborough on Saturday but we had a good win against a really good team in midweek against Fleetwood and we’ve got to look forward to another game against a tough opponent but we’ve got to relish the games, enjoy the games both home and away.

“We are still chasing our first win away from home which is unbelievable considering the performances we’ve put in.”

With the news coming last week that the Sky Blues will be without Matty Godden for up to four months, Robins told how he has speaking with the recruitment team ahead of possible avenues for the January Transfer Window.

“Well we need to do some things; I’ve had a meeting yesterday with the recruitment department and there are things we need to do to freshen up.

“Matty Godden will be around February/March time given a fair wind and we are waiting to hear on what’s happening, whether it’s a conservative rehabilitation or whether it’s going to be something more drastic.

“We’ve just got to wait and see but that’s something for the physios and the specialists and Matty to come to a decision over and we are waiting on that.

“Obviously we are without the services of Wesley Jobello and that’s had an impact on us , negatively I think and it’s up to others now and its up to me to find a way of consistently getting results and the players to help us do that and we keep doing the work on the training ground that’s hopefully going to keep us improving in the right direction.”
