City boss keeping with lone striker

Coventry City manager Mark Robins has said that he is not changing his tactics and switching to 4-4-2.

When asked by the Coventry Telegraph on behalf of a supporter who asked if he was going to bring in a striker, the City boss said; "The dynamic of the team has changed and I think people should let me develop that. We want to play football and 4-4-2 is not something we are massively suited to. We can do it but I think we are more suited to the way we play football because it promotes us passing the ball and the movement I am looking for, And in general, we do pretty well at it.

"If you abandon those principles early on that sends the wrong message out for m and we have got to develop what we are doing and what we are about because we have to have some sort of identity and way of playing and philosophy for this football club which is to pass the ball and pass it properly.

"Against Preston, we needed to mix it up but that's League One football and all football in fairness. You have to play the game and you might to play it a little bit longer at times."
