21 September 2018

A detailed look at Saturday's opponents, Coventry City.

Press Talk...

Coventry boss Mark Robins detailed his thoughts on Saturday's fixture to coventrycity.co.uk.

The Sky Blues Manager relayed that he's expecting a tough contest at BS7 on Saturday afternoon.

“It is not about anything they (Rovers) are doing or done, this will be a really difficult game and we’ve got to be ready for it.” Robins told the Official Coventry website.

“We’ve got to go there with the same determination as we’ve gone into every game this season and try and pick up the three points, which we always do, but I want us to focus on what we have been doing and continue what we’ve been doing and try and get better at it as we go.

“The pleasing thing is the results have been really good but the performances have been better and we just want to try and keep that going.

“Bristol Rovers had a good win against West Hams U21’s and they’ll have gained a little bit of confidence.

“We are going to down to Bristol trying to gain three points and I’m just looking for us to maintain the levels of performance we’ve had and see if we can improve.”

Star Man...

Defender Jordan Willis is a constant figurehead at the heart of the Coventry defence. The twenty-four-year-old is a product of the Coventry academy and has been capped at youth level by England.

Willis is approaching one-hundred-and-fifty appearances for the Sky Blues and grabbed the only of the game in Coventry's win over Barnsley last Saturday.
