It Was Very Disappointing - Robins

Coventry City manager Mark Robins has described Portsmouth's late equaliser which saw a 1-1 draw at the Ricoh Arena yesterday as very disappointing.

"It was very disappointing," said Robins, speaking to the Coventry Telegraph's Alan Poole. "We played really, really well in the first half, scored one excellent goal and should have scored a lot more.

"We didn't pass the ball as well in the second half, although you've got to give Portsmouth credit for tightening things up, but we still did more than enough to win it.

"There's no way the goal we had disallowed was offside and that would have killed the game off, but you're always vulnerable when you've just got a 1-0 lead and we shot ourselves in the foot at the end with a catalogue of errors that enabled them to score.

"It's a point, which keeps us moving in the right direction, but the lads are all bitterly disappointed not to make it three and we need to examine where we went wrong and learn those lessons. If we do that, I think well win a lot more games than not."
