Last updated : 12 January 2019 By CNS Sport

Coventry City manager Mark Robins said that he was disappointed that his side did not win after City drew 1-1 with AFC Wimbledon.

City trailed early to a Jake Jervis goal but levelled on the hour through Luke Thomas in a game where far too often, they were trying to walk the ball into the net.

Speaking to BBC Coventry & Warwickshire about the draw which keeps City eighth in the table, Mark Robins said: “It’s like a number of games that we’ve had this season, we actually played really well.

“The thing with today is that whilst it’s a disappointment that we haven’t won, it is a game we should have won.

“We’ve been chasing it from ninety seconds in which isn’t ideal at any time, but we did that, and we were brave passing the ball.

“The pitch is in a really difficult state, so they can be congratulated for trying to pass it as well as they did do on that surface and it cost us at times, but we have to live with it and keep moving the ball as quickly as we can.

“On the back of it, we’ve come from a goal down. On the face of it, people will say that they are bottom of the league.

“However, they’re on a better run of results than we are, so we’ve got to be realistic in terms of where we are and where we have been.

“We’ve won three on the bounce, lost one, and we’ve just drawn this one which is clearly better than the run of results prior to this.

“I can see that there are good signs, but it’s the finishing that’s the big thing for us.”
