Coventry City boss Mark Robins wants to 'put on good show' for last home game v Walsall

Correspondent 21st Apr, 2017

COVENTRY City boss Mark Robins says they want to ‘put on a good show’ for the last home game of the season tomorrow against Walsall.

He told the club’s website: “We’ve been concentrating on everything as usual, everything we do is geared towards the game and fitness.

“As things sink in, we re-adjust a bit. Training has been better, I’ve got no complaints. Last home game of the season, we want to put a good show on.

“Bitter disappointment this season, it has been interspersed with some good feeling at Wembley. But it is an all too infrequent feeling that supporters have had.

“There are two games to go, we’ve got to see the season off properly. A lot of things are being done behind the scenes. First and foremost, a good game tomorrow. Against a good team.

“Trying to win and performing in front of supporters. Play well and score goals, sign off the home season with a win. There is an expectation, it is what you are paid to do.

“You’re always being judged as a player. That’s part of the fun of it, trying to do your best and better than your opponent.”

Robins also said there are ‘lots of plans’ for the pre-season this summer, including with the recently appointed Tommy Widdrington heading a new player recruitment drive.

Of pre-season friendlies, he added: “I need somewhere to play home games. We won’t get the Ricoh. I’ve got that issue, we’ll get around it to some degree.

“We might have a local club that will kindly let us use facilities. We’ve got a couple of games nailed on, one behind closed doors. In the meantime we’ve got that little job of re-building, who we keep and who will leave. Who the new players will be.

“I will do as best I can with the circumstances I’ve got.”
