INTERVIEW: Robins reflects on Doncaster draw

City salvage a late point to stay unbeaten...

28 September 2019

Mark Robins has praised goal scorer Amadou Bakayoko for salvaging a late point for the Sky Blues against Doncaster on Saturday.

Bakayoko’s goal extended City’s unbeaten run to ten games but it was his performances in the week leading up to the game that pleased Robins the most.
Robins said: “His performances have been really good in training this week and he has been banging the ball into the back of the net which has obviously given him the confidence to come on and score.
“He has been one of the best in training, very, very good and has been unfortunate to miss out the past couple of weeks but he hasn’t said anything or come to knock on my door to ask why, he has just knuckled down and that’s what I want.”
Despite having no fixture last weekend, Robins was pleased with the way his players returned to league action and showed no signs of complacency.
Robins said: “I think that we were really good and we played really well creating a lot of real clear-cut chances throughout the game.
“The first real chance they got they stuck it in the back of the net but we did not stop, we kept plugging away and at half time we spoke about it and just said we had to keep going.
“The break can make you stutter a little but that performances gets us going again for the games to come.
Robins was impressed with Darren Moore’s Doncaster side but felt if the game went on any longer there would have only been one winner.
He said: “Gervane came on and was electric and that’s what I want from him.
“I think that we have come up against the best side we have faced here this season but I think we were really unfortunate that we just ran out of time.
“I think we can be pleased with the lateness of the goal but really we should have put them away.”
