INTERVIEW: Mark Robins Blackburn Reaction

The Gaffer talks 2-2 draw...

16 October 2021

Sky Blues boss Mark Robins reflected on today’s 2-2 draw at Ewood Park as a second half strike from Tyler Walker and a Kaminski own-goal ensured that the points were shared.

Following the Sky Blues’ second half resurgence, manager Mark Robins was questioned on whether he was satisfied with a point.

“I think I’ve got to be really,” Robins stated.

“At the start of the game, the first half was too far away from what we expect and what we are used to.


“I think that we were just a little bit reluctant to go and engage, which meant that we weren’t in the right positions when we got the ball so we were giving the ball away too often.


“In the early stages, and even before the first goal there was not much between the two teams. Little bit of quality lacking, but they ended up getting a goal which was, from our perspective, really poor. After that you’re expecting us to try and be a little bit better for the next ten minutes or so.”


Despite Joe Rothwell and Sam Gallagher putting the home side in the driving seat, heading into the break with a two-goal advantage, Robins spoke of how the Sky Blues prepared for a comeback at the break.


“We spoke about it at half time, and they were really brave in the second half,” praised Robins.


“To go two down was a real blow because it was a poor goal but we know that we’re a good side when they believe.


“In the second half they showed belief and they showed some bottle and had a go. It made for a really good, entertaining second half.


“Simon has done well at the end with a save from Brereton-Diaz, other than that I think that we really deserved it.”
