As each week, Mark Robins has reflected on recent games and looked ahead to the upcoming match in his regular programme column, which you can read in full in PUSB.

Reflecting on the point against Birmingham City last Friday, the City boss admitted that the Sky Blues needed to be 'braver' in commiting bodies forward. 

"I thought we started the game really well in possession," said Robins.

"We were good in the build-up phase and players got on the ball and looked comfortable when they had it. We just needed to be a little braver to get bodies higher up the pitch, as the striker can become isolated.

"We changed our shape in the second-half and played with two up front, but unfortunately we couldn’t break the deadlock and had to be satisfied with a point from the game against good opposition in a unique fixture."

Previewing the encounter with Cardiff City, Play-Off semi-finalists in the Championship last year, Robins is expecting another good test for his Sky Blues side and wants the side to put in a performance that fans watching at home can enjoy.

"They have shown themselves so far this season to be a team that move the ball well and are solid at the back, conceding 12 goals in their 12 games," said Robins.

"Neil Harris has been in charge for just over a year now and has done a good job in developing the side and their style of play since he took over, so this will be another good challenge.

"After a solid defensive display last week, we want that to continue and use that as a building block to create more opportunities at the other end and hopefully put in a performance that ourselves and our fans watching at home can all be proud of."
