Red Devils Next For Robins

Red Devils Next For Robins

Coventy City host Crawley Town on Tuesday night in League One with both sides coming off the back of FA Cup wins against non-league opposition.

Mark Robins was happy enough with his side's second-half display against Arlesey but Red Devils boss Richie Barker felt Crawley laboured somewhat in victory away to the Metropolitan Police.

In League One, however, it is Tuesday night's visitors who are flying high as they aim to seal a second succesive promotion. Crawley currently lie 3rd in the table while the Sky Blues, despite their win at Leyton Orient last weekend, remain in the bottom four.

As when Stevenage came to the Ricoh Arena earlier in the season this is a game that Coventry would win comfortably were it based on history but few would put money on a home success based on the campaign to date.

'tight'

Crawley's games on the road this season have been tight affairs with 8 goals for and 7 against in 7 matches but they have been beaten away from home only twice.

Robins labelled his players as an 'anxious bunch' after their slow start against Arlesey and even took a leaf out of his old manager's book when wondering whether they were losing each other against the backdrop of empty seats at the Ricoh Arena.

He remains, however, confident in his longer-term vision for how he wants his side to perform and has promised a CCFC that play on the front foot from the off and give their long-suffering supporters something to savour.
