Robins - Hopefully Not A 0-0

Last updated : 17 November 2017 By CNS Sport

Coventry City manager Mark Robins has said that he hopes the defensive capabilities of both sides are not a recipe for a 0-0 draw.

Going into tomorrow's game at Lincoln City, the Sky Blues have ten clean sheets in league matches but have a major problem in goal-scoring which for a club that has more supporters staying away for one reason or another than almost every club in League Two has supporters, is not the best way of retaining the supporters that are sticking with the club.

Lincoln also have a good defensive record but have scored six goals in their last two matches and Mark Robins told the media assembled at Ryton this morning: "Hopefully, both our defensive capabilities are not a recipe for a 0-0, but we have to go out and enjoy it.

"I think it will be a good game. We have two very different styles. They play a high intensity game where they willl try and pin us in and play the ball into their strikers.

"They have their threats but they have their weaknesses aswell, like every team in the division.

"Tomorrow we have a really good opportunity to go out there and perform against a really good side. 

"The Cowley brothers at Lincoln have done a terrific job. The supporters are onboard and with them and the club is a really nice story for them and everybody involved.

"They have had some success and they are on the same points as us now, and it all meassures up to be an interesting afternooon.

"We are looking to go there and try and get three points. 

"We have to start cranking up the pressure now on ourselves and everybody else in the division. We are capable and we have to start showing that."
