Bees Versus Sky Blues: Killer Instinct Needed

Bees Versus Sky Blues: Killer Instinct Needed

Both managers are demanding more from their respective teams when Brentford and Coventry City meet in League One at Griffin Park on Tuesday night.

While Mark Robins felt his team attempted to play football the right way against Notts County on Saturday, the City boss wants much more of a purpose to the passes that the men in Sky Blue are making.

Opposite number Uwe Rosler, meanwhile, felt his Bees were 'too nice' when beaten at Doncaster on Saturday after taking the lead, saying afterwards: 'I just want to win scrappy.

'We started the game well and were the best team for most of it, but it was a frustrating last 15 minutes.'

Robins is considering a start for midfielder Steven Jennings after he impressed as a substitute against the Magpies, telling the Coventry Telegraph: 'He brought a presence in the middle of the pitch.'

For the sake of this season, and everyone's confidence that the club is trying to move in the right direction we have to put a run of wins together. It would be a bit of a surprise if that started tonight but our style of play under Robins has worked well away from home, clean sheets at Oldham and York and for 75 minutes against Swindon.
