INTERVIEW: "The Performances Have Been Of A High Standard"

City return to action this weekend...

27 September 2019

The Sky Blues head into the weekend’s clash with Doncaster Rovers, still unbeaten in League One, however that isn’t something manager Mark Robins is looking much into.

City have played nine games and sit second in the division, winning all five at St Andrew’s and drawing four on the road.

Robins told local press this morning that his side don’t look at the unbeaten record and they are purely focused on the next game.

“We talk about what we are going to do, what our performances have to be and tomorrow we have to play as well as we have this season to get anything from the game.

“They’re a good side and we’ve got to be aware of that and what their threats on but we want to try and play our game.

“There were things against AFC Wimbledon last time out where we were really good and there were times where we weren’t so good, and we’ve got to tighten that up and see if we can take more of our chances.

“There’s things and you can call it nit-picking but really tidying up one or two areas but you know for the majority of it they’ve been brave, they’ve been bright the performances have been of a really high standard and again looking for more of the same tomorrow.”

The Sky Blues last played ten days ago, against AFC Wimbledon, due to the cancellation of the fixture against Bury.

Robins revealed he still has the same squad available to him despite the break and that those on the sidelines are ten days closer to being fit.

“Well clearly there’s not been any games so touchwood you don’t get any more injuries and that’s been the case.

“That ten days is ten days closer for people to be fit. At this stage there’s no one else who’s available from last time out, but again ten days closer

“Liam Kelly is closer to fitness and we’ll just wait and see on it but certainly he’s back on the grass, as is Josh Pask and Jodi Jones so they're doing bits now which is good to see and they’re closer to being ready for us, but not close enough.

“Jamie (Allen) is the most frustrated figure in the building, I think every day you’re looking at him and he’s desperate to be fit because he just hasn’t been able to get started as of yet.”
