Robins is expecting a tough test for the Sky Blues as the two sides renew rivalries as two of the form sides in League One.

Coventy have lost just once in their last 12 matches in League One, helping them rise to fourth in the table.

But Robins predicts that his side will have plenty to worry about from Rovers, who themselves are pushing up the standings after four wins from their last five.

“Tomorrow’s game is a big game,” Robins said.

“They’re a good side and they haven’t conceded many goals. They’ve conceded fewer than us but played less games, I think.

“It’s interesting the split in their games, I think they’ve played 15 at home and nine away, so there’s a big split and they’ve got plenty more away games to come.

“Tomorrow’s game is a huge game because of the way that they play and the way they go about things.

“They’re a really good team and it’s great looking at them and how they perform.

“They’re a good side at what they do, and we just have to be aware of that, but also know where we can hurt them as well.

“It’ll be as much about what we do out of possession as what we do in possession and that’s the challenge, that’s the challenge for us in the game not just tomorrow but moving forward.”
