Last updated : 01 January 2018 By CNS Sport

Coventry City manager Mark Robins was pleased as the Sky Blues beat Chesterfield 1-0 to go third in the League Two table and make it nine points from a possible twelve in their matches over the Christmas and New Year Period.

Speaking to BBC Coventry & Warwickshire after the win, Robins said:"We have had a good Christmas period and now we find ourselves in the top three.

"The lads have been brilliant. We defended really well. Sometimes we dropped a little too deep but we defended everything really well. Jordan Willis, Tom Davies and the full-backs were all oustanding.

"Sparky has got us a really good goal. Some of the attacking play in the second half was really good but we just couldn't get that second goal.

"Their goalkeeper has made a couple of oustanding saves and we have not been able to capitalise and finish them off. 

"The fatigue was there for both teams after this busy period but the lads gave everything. I think Chesterfield did aswell. They have had a right good go at use because they felt they could get back in it with a goal, but we hung on for the clean sheet."

Chesterfield boss Jack Lester said: “We should not have lost the game. We did not do enough to win it, although we had some chances in the second half.”
