INTERVIEW: Mark Robins Huddersfield Town Reaction

Gaffer reflects after final home game…

30 April 2022

Manager Mark Robins praised the fans for their support as the Sky Blues wrapped up their first season back at the Coventry City Building Society Arena.

After two years at St.Andrew's, the Sky Blues finally returned home to the Coventry Building Society Arena in what turned out to be a blast of a season.

With over 23,000 supporters in attendance for the match versus Huddersfield Town, today, and season ticket sales sky-high, Mark Robins thanked the fans for their sustained support throughout the campaign.

“It was a really good day, in terms of the start of it, the crowd and the atmosphere in the stadium and we started really well.” Robins began.

“The energy the fans have given them today was phenomenal, even at the end just to say thank you to them and to the players was really good too see and hear and feel.

“We’ve got to prepare for the game against Stoke now because I know we’ve sold every ticket for that, every ticket that has been on sale has sold out which is phenomenal really.

“We’re almost at 11,000 season tickets too which is really healthy in terms of support for the club, so we’ve got to prepare for next week and next season after that and that’s the challenge for me and the staff.”

On another note, Robins reflected on the fine margins that separated the two sides as Huddersfield ran narrow out 2-1 victors.

“We created a load of chances and in the end we created 18 chances against a side that don’t give up chances easily. We kept going until the death.

“The story of it is that we are really good in possession and then out of possession we concede a chance and it seems to end up in the back of the net and that’s something we’ve got to improve on.

“We’ve had seven defeats at home in the past thirteen games, I think, there’s been quite a few and that’s a worrying trend, so that’s something we’ve got to sort out.

“We gave soft goals away today and that’s really cost us because you end up two down against a good defence, but we kept going and we end up doing what we normally do and create a good opportunity that we take after about six or seven that we didn’t and that really alters the face of the game.

“It’s a really tough league and you can look at it a few ways, we’re not too far away from that top six, but the reality is we’re quite far away and the reasoning for that is the bits in the two boxes.

“Callum’s pulled one wide and that calmness there is needed, if [Huddersfield] get that chance it’s in the back of the net no doubt and they’re the things you’ve got to get right and we can’t shy away from those chances because if you want to be a Championship side .”
