Last updated : 17 October 2017 By CNS Sport

Coventry City manager Mark Robins said that he was disappointed by the 1-0 loss at home to Accrington Stanley.

Speaking about the game which was settled by Lee Burge spilling a Keanu Marsh-Brown shot into the net in the 28th minute, to the Press Association, Mark Robins said: "I'm really disappointed and frustrated.

"In the cold light of day we've created a lot of opportunities. But again we've not scored and it's certainly a concern.

"We're just going through a difficult week after a poor game on Saturday and a poor result tonight. We took too long to have a shot and we're just becoming really anxious.

"It was easy to see early on. We wanted to get shots off early as we could but then we had poor decision-making. We should be relaxed, work hard but relax.

"We're trying to score, by the looks of it, a perfect goal. I think we had 24 shots on goal but we need to make sure we stick together, don't overreact and move on.

"They've not had to work for their goal. The ball has moved a hell of a lot, but it still shouldn't end up in the back of the net."

Mark Cooper told the Press Association:  "We've come to a daunting venue and come away with a really hard-earned victory.

"There was loads of extra time, we should have had a penalty to kill it off but it was always going to be hard to get over the line.

"The seven minutes of stoppage time certainly topped it off and killed everyone's blood pressure!

"But we defended really well and it doesn't matter how you get the win. This gives us much confidence and we need to kick on. I thought our goalkeeper was brilliant.

"He was brave all night and we're really pleased with him. He's done well and can be proud of himself."
