Inside the Sky Blues camp:

Mark Robins said: "We’ve got some brilliant games coming up and people can finish the season on high and a positive.

“It’s been reallyy positive so far and we want to maintain that. The result against Stoke gave everyone a kick in the teeth.

“It’s how we respond and come back from that, and we have some difficult games coming up and a really difficult game tomorrow, which we haven’t had positive results against since we came back in the Championship.

“We should have had one at home, but they turned it round and the way they play they make it difficult for people.

“They’re first in terms of possession in the league this season and they have some quality and the way they work is a good way of working and interesting way of playing, but there are weaknesses to exploit, but we have to perform first and foremost tomorrow because we didn’t perform anywhere near the levels last time out.”
