INTERVIEW: Mark Robins Previews Sheffield Wednesday

City take on the Owls this weekend...

18 December 2020

In the last fixture before Christmas, the Sky Blues make the trip to Hillsborough to take on Sheffield Wednesday.


City come into the game on the back of an eight-game unbeaten run, which has seen them climb to 18th in the Championship in recent weeks.

Although in contrast, tomorrow’s opponents may well be sitting 24th as things stand, Mark Robins told press earlier today that he is excepting a tough challenge against a good side.

“Everybody looks at various things.” Robins said.

“We look at what they are and the team that they are we want to be us and plan for ourselves and what we want to do.

“Like I say there’s no easy games, there’s zero easy games and if people suggest otherwise then they’re mad.

“I think that people just go ‘this is another game’, but you have to look at the accumulation of the games and what the players are doing is remarkable.”

Tomorrow’s game will bring an end to a block of nine fixtures which Robins had identified, as City will be without a midweek fixture next week for the first time since November.

The Sky Blues boss was full of praise for the way his side have gotten through the last few weeks in terms of performances and results.

“The players deserve an awful lot of credit for what they’re doing both in terms of performances and availability, it’s so difficult I can’t tell you; trying to keep everyone right is really difficult and it’s a challenge.

“We still haven’t had everyone available to us this season whether that will happen or not remains to be seen, that’s really got to be the goal, but we’ve got to keep focused on the next game and then after this one we can have a bit of a breather before we go into the Christmas period.

“It will give us time to train and hopefully we can regroup and get people up to speed a little bit quicker, but again it is just hypothetical.

“All the best laid plans you’ll have change and alter and adapt and that’s normal but maybe a bit more planning goes into it because of the factors involved.”
