The Coventry City manager Mark Robins has said that he wants the players to keep their cool when it comes to finishing, as it would help them overcome the current goal-scoring crisis. Coventry created a lot of opportunities in the recent match against Portsmouth, but they were unable to find the net on more than one occasion. Portsmouth managed to equalise the match and this left the manager Mark Robins frustrated once again. Even though they had more than 10 opportunities to score, they could manage only one goal. Robins has said that he has dedicated more time on the pitch towards helping them score goals.
He has said that players should keep their cool in front of goal, which would in itself solve the crisis in terms of efficiency. The defender William Edjenguele had four chances himself to score, but was unable to convert any. Robins has said that the fact that he made the opposition goalkeeper makes numerous saves alone is extremely good. He has been extremely encouraged by the performance in the final third of the pitch, which has seen the team create lot of opportunities in recent weeks. As a result, they go into the second round FA Cup match against Morecambe with a lot of confidence. Robins has said that the players can also rely on the home form, which has been good this season.
“We are starting to do that better in the opposition box but still not getting the reward of goals at home. We are getting plenty of territory, plenty of corners, free-kicks and shots on goal, so we need to be brighter. There was one occasion on Saturday when Carl Baker put his hand on it and played Cyrus Christie in down the right-hand side,” said Robinson after the Portsmouth match.
