Coventry City manager Mark Robins has stated that he wants his team to push for promotion at the end of the season.
He said that it is the objective of any team to win promotion and that Coventry City is no different.
He admitted however that we are at an early stage of the pre-season and it would take time to assess whether the team will manage to do it. He said that there is plenty of new faces in the team and that they will need some time before getting used to their surroundings and to play at their best level.
Mark Robins was speaking just after a pre-season match that saw his side plays against Sutton United. He said that he deliberately looked to play against a non-league opposition as they were very physical and this is the kind of opposition that they will be coming against in the league.
He said that he has added players that can fight for results and that also possess a bit of quality. He believes that if you want to win promotion, you should be ready for a fight and this is why he is looking to build a team that is strong physically.
He said that it is still early in the pre-season, but he wants to make it clear to the players that the objective of the team is to win promotion. He said that the players should be ready to work hard on the training ground and above all deliver the goods where it matters the most that is on the pitch.
He believes that there is enough quality in the team to win games in the league and that they should have the right attitude if they want to make it through.
