PREVIEW: Sky Blues host QPR in final fixture of the 2023/24 season

City take on the Hoops at the CBS Arena...

3 May 2024

Coventry City take on Queens Park Rangers this weekend in the final fixture of the 2023/24 Championship season.


Mark Robins pre-match thoughts:

“It’s always important to win. It’s always about winning and if we can finish with a win tomorrow, then fantastic.

“QPR are a different side to what we faced earlier in the season under Martí Cifuentes. They’ve been really good, and they’ve managed to get themselves in a much stronger position, playing some good football, aggressive football.

“The game will be difficult, it will be tough, but we want to finish the season off properly, we always do.”


Martí Cifuentes pre-match thoughts:

“We want to finish with a positive afternoon, we always want to improve,” he said.

“Although the main target has been achieved, we are against a good side who have done well this season in both the league and the cup, and we will be backed by a sold-out away end once again, so we want to finish with a positive performance and end the season on a high.”

“We know that these kinds of games need to find the right type of motivation, but we will never change.”

  • Sky Blues 1-2 Ipswich Town
