Robins - A Good Chance For Us

Coventry City manager Mark Robins has said that the home game against Burton Albion provides a good chance for his side.

City face Burton Albion in a game at the Ricoh Arena which has been brought forward due to Wasps being at home on Saturday and speaking about the game, Mark Robins told the media: “It is a good chance for us, and Burton will see the same.

“It is a Friday night game, it is a chance of moving within 2 points, but we are looking to continue what we are doing, with the style of play we are playing; the players are enjoying themselves and full of confidence.

“We concentrate on performance, because I don’t think there is a great deal wrong with what we are doing.

“We know we haven’t scored as many goals as we should have, we haven’t conceded too many either, I think we have got to maintain what we are doing and stay focused and keep enjoying it.

“We have to keep the performances up against different opposition and Burton have been really good opponents.

“They have been up and down with results, but a good side with a lot of experience. They came down from the Championship last season meaning they are a good side.”


Burton Albion boss Nigel Clough is quoted by Derbyshire Live as saying: "I think that is why it’s been a brilliant season for them, (first to) get promoted back into League One, with everything that seems to be going on, then for Mark Robins and his team to keep concentrating and playing as they are.

"We said when we played them here earlier in the season, they’re a good team with some good players - well-organised, a good manager.

"It’ll be one of the toughest away games.

"They just had a brilliant win at Accrington Stanley on Saturday. We know how difficult it is up there. The pitch is a bit bumpy at the moment.

"It’s a great three points for them on the road there, so it’ll be as tough as anyone this week."
