INTERVIEW: Mark Robins Millwall Preview

The gaffer previews the final game of the campaign...

7 May 2021

Mark Robins is looking forward to the end of the season ahead of the Sky Blues clash with Millwall at St Andrew’s tomorrow lunchtime.

The Sky Blues finish the 2020/21 campaign against the Lions and are aiming to complete a league double over their opponents having won 2-1 at the Den earlier this season.

                 

Robins is expecting a physical game against Gary Rowett’s side and thinks it could be an entertaining affair.

Robins said: “Tomorrow is going to be a good game, they’re a good side, when we played them last time they’d just had 10 days off because of the Covid outbreak they had.

“They’ve got some good players, Jed Wallace is a really talented player, they function really well together, they can mix up their style and they break really well, they’re a good team and I think it can be a really good game.

“I’m hoping for a good game, it could be entertaining, we want to go about the job right and earn the right to play our stuff.

“They’re a physical match but they’ve also got talented players within their squad, they’ve employed different methods throughout the season, it could be a good game to end the season.”

The manager also looked ahead to City’s return to the Ricoh Arena next season with Saturday’s match marking the Sky Blues final home fixture at St Andrew’s.

“I’m looking to try and win the game, we’ve got to be true to ourselves, it’s not about shoehorning people into positions but it might mean I can have a look at one or two different things, it’s an interesting game and hopefully we can make it a really good and entertaining one.

“Whatever we do, we’ll be competitive, I’m looking forward to the game, it’s our last game at St Andrew’s before we return to the Ricoh, we had a visit to the Ricoh earlier on in the week which was good.

“Everybody has seen the stadium and what it looks like, not necessarily what it feels like just yet, but that was good, we had a really nice welcome, we’ll sign off at St Andrew’s and thank Birmingham for their hospitality and the way they’ve looked after us over the last couple of years.”
