Coventry City manager Mark Robins has said that he was pleased with City's first half performance and the clean sheet in the 1-0 win over Walsall on Saturday.

Speaking to BBC Coventry & Warwickshire: I was pleased with the first half, three points and a clean sheet in the last home game of the season,” said the manager, after George Thomas gave City a 1-0 victory in their penultimate match of 2016/17.

“The win in front of the supporters was important and it’s really the tale of the season when we have had 16 shots with three on target. Fifteen were from open play and the one we have got for the goal was from a set play.

“I thought the approach play to the edge and into the box was really, really good and it’s just getting the shots away, the power behind them and the clinical finishing that’s missing. But I think we deserved the three points.

“The second half was massively disjointed. Walsall had a man sent off and we were tiring badly but thankfully we held on and they didn’t cause us too many problems. We caused ourselves more problems by not controlling the game, but I understand people were tiring.”
