City boss wants more

Following the Sky Blues super second half showing at Hartlepool United on Saturday where they hit five goals without reply, Coventry City manager Mark Robins has demanded more of the same.

Speaking to the CT's Andy Turner, the City boss said: "That gives us a real good feeling going into the next game but there’s no way we can start to feel complacent.

"It was a good response after the defeat against Scunthorpe which dragged us back to fifth from bottom.

‘‘I was embarrassed by that because I don’t want to be anywhere near there – and I think we proved against Hartlepool that these players are good enough not to be.

"Hartlepool might be bottom of the table but they certainly didn’t roll over and die and we made things difficult for ourselves for five or ten minutes because we took our foot off the gas.

"We can’t afford to do that – we have to maintain our concentration for 90 minutes, and this shows what we can achieve if we do that.

"We scored five good-quality goals and kept a clean sheet, but the all-round level of performance was the important thing.

It’s been a while coming, so lets hope we get the same performance on Tuesday night – let’s go out and play in the same vein against a decent side."
