INTERVIEW: Mark Robins Millwall Reaction

The Gaffer’s thoughts after sharing the points at Millwall…

18 September 2021

Mark Robins praised his players after picking up a point on the road against Millwall.

After two successive home wins, the Sky Blues travelled to the Den to take on Millwall to cap off a jam-packed week of football.

City top-goalscorer Viktor Gyökeres gave the Sky Blues the lead, before being pegged back by a George Saville equaliser to round off the day’s action.

Mark Robins said he is pleased with his sides performance and reflected positively on the past week of games.

“Yeah, it rounds off a really good week for us, this game could’ve gone either way, and you can see by the results up and down the country today how this game is so difficult and how much it takes out of you.

“From our perspective we played some good football, took the lead, conceded from our perspective a poor goal, but you're playing against a really good side.

“Absolutely, there were other chances, the keeper has made decent saves, we’ve missed the target a couple of times, Murray Wallace took it off Tyler walkers foot at the end.”

Reflecting on the match, Robins was quick to praise both sides for their efforts and was impressed with quality of football on show.

“These are a different proposition from when we played last year, they’ve got better players, the crowd is back and they play in a way that demands things from you, and I think both sets of players performed at a really high level.

“It was a good advert for Championship football, it could’ve been three each, four each, they’ll feel aggrieved because it looked like a good goal, but it’s a relief for us.

“Having played two tough games at home and then coming and travelling here, and Gary [Rowett’s] had the reverse, playing the third at home may have a benefit, but credit to the players because both sets gave everything today and you can see the energy they’ve expended today, it was incredible.”
