Robins: We Have Not Scored Again And That Means Work To Do

Last updated : 14 October 2017 By CNS Sport

Coventry City manager Mark Robins was critical of his side's failure to make the most of their chances yet again away from home.

The Sky Blues went down to a 1-0 defeat at Accrington Stanley and Robins told the Press Association about a game where City supporters out-numbered the home support: "I am disappointed.

"In the first half we had nothing, in the second half we huffed and puffed but we were on the back foot because they scored first. If the opposition score first, you are always on the back foot.

"If we had been on the front foot from the beginning it would have been a different story. We have to deal with it from the start.

"We created bits and pieces and we could and should have scored and we have to put it right.

"I have got a problem to solve, we are not scoring enough goals away from home and that's my problem.

"We just need one to go in off someone's backside, there were too many chances from outside the area and you can see we are waiting, we just need one to go in for confidence, and then we can play with freedom.

"We haven't scored again and that means there is work to do but luckily we have a chance to bounce straight back on Tuesday."

"It was a fantastic goal, it's the type of football we want to play and we know we have that in our locker," said the Accrington manager.

"Sean (McConville) did well in the first half, he was a constant menace with a number of shots and I am delighted he got his goal.

"We started how I wanted to, we were on the front foot and we were terrific, hitting the woodwork twice.

"We were a constant threat but our threat disappeared in the second half and they pinned us back more than any other team this season. They asked us a lot of questions.

"Thankfully it was a strong defensive show in the second half, as it was like attack against defence at times, but our defence were magnificent."
