INTERVIEW: "We've got a brilliant squad"

It's a trip to Spotland for the Sky Blues this weekend...

21 February 2020

The Sky Blues head into this weekend’s game with Rochdale looking to extend their unbeaten run to eleven games in League One.

City are on a four-game winning run and manager Mark Robins told how his side are enjoying their football and he wants them to continue to embrace that.

“All I’m looking for from the players is that they continue to enjoy it and continue to do the things they’re enjoying doing.” Robins said.

“If they can do that and we can keep improving as well then who knows.

“The enjoyment factor is the main thing we’ve just got to really embrace that and keep being brave and keep doing what we’ve been doing all season.

“It’s good and it’s great to watch and everyone’s enjoying it, that’s the main thing because it’s entertainment and what it will do is give everyone an extra interest at this stage of the season which is brilliant.

“If you’d have told me at the start of the season, we’d have been in this position at this stage I’d have snatched your hand off.

“Moving stadium and all the things we have to consider we have been brilliant; players have been fantastic; the staff have been brilliant, and the supporters have followed and I think it’s been outstanding.”

City are level on points with table-toppers Rotherham United as things stand, with the Yorkshire side travelling to St Andrew’s midweek.

However, the Sky Blues take on Rochdale on Saturday in the first of three fixtures in the space of a week and Robins is looking to use his full squad in the upcoming games.

“We’ve got a brilliant squad really and we’ve got a lot of players pushing for places and there’s a lot of young players behind that that are wanting to force themselves into the reckoning.

“Whichever way we go we’ve got good players and that’s brilliant for me and they’re all pushing to play and they’re all together and they’re all focused.

“At this stage its happy days for me, the big thing is the focus, the big things energy and to remain those things will give us a chance in each game but tough games coming up but brilliant games to look forward to.”
