INTERVIEW: Mark Robins Norwich City Preview

The boss looks ahead to the game this weekend...

27 November 2020

Sky Blues boss Mark Robins is looking for his side to continue their impressive form as of late when they take on Norwich City tomorrow afternoon.

City make the trip to Carrow Road as they look to build on Wednesday’s win over Cardiff, which saw them keep their second of back to back clean sheets.

Norwich currently sit top of the Championship and were recently relegated from the Premier League, but Robins is hopeful heading into the game.

He said: “We want to go there and perform as well as we possibly can do, but we need to take into consideration, fatigue and things like that because the games come so quickly.

They are sitting top of the league at the moment and just come down from the Premier League, they have a squad full of quality so it’s a game we look forward too; on the back of the other night we were really good and showed really good determination and some real good quality, the goal was outstanding.

“On the back of a really good few days for us we go into another game with another challenge.

“The game the other day we knew was going to be a tight game and the two clean sheets at home have been a really big plus for us and the players confidence, it was really important.

“We know we can play and get better; tomorrow is a real good challenge for us and hopefully we can make it a really tough day for them too.”

This will be the Sky Blues third game in the space of a week and Robins will be looking at his side to see how they are coping with busy schedule.

“I have to keep my eyes on things and it’s a lot of it is guesswork because we haven’t got saliva tests and things like that, which give you markers for fatigue, so really you are looking with your eyes at  how the players are.

“Hopefully we can preserve everybody’s fitness, but the biggest thing is getting the performance out of them and we have got to look forward to each game.”

One man who has been in fine form is striker Tyler Walker, who has two goals in his last three games, including the winner against Cardiff.

Since coming into the side, Walker has been producing fine performances and Robins has been impressed with what he has seen with his striker.

“He is a good player and there are still elements of his play he could tidy up like his build up play but in front of goal; he is an outstanding finisher so he will only improve.

“He has been good, and his work rate is outstanding and he put in a lot of work there, his explosive movements were good, his control and finishing.

“That goal was outstanding and the second chance he had was one he thought he was going to score because he scores them all the time.

“He will improve get better, fitter and stronger and he will get more experience. It was a good performance from him but also it was a really good team performance.”
