Mark Robins, the manager of Coventry City, praised the talent of his team, saying that Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Leeds United “feels like a win” after the Sky Blues held Daniel Farke’s team to a point.
Leeds entered the match following a defeat against Sunderland. However, Coventry was playing well, having defeated Southampton, who had just been demoted, before this Saturday’s match at Elland Road. Leeds went ahead after 58 minutes.
Crysencio Summerville is keeping up his incredible streak of performance. Less than ten minutes later, however, Bobby Thomas equalized. With a header, the summer recruit scored his first goal of the season and for Coventry.
Following the game, Summerville declined to shake Thomas’ hand, which led to an altercation between the two participants. A fight about which Thomas later recounted, stating Summerville ignored him with “no respect.”
After the match, Coventry manager Robins commented on the team’s website that the draw felt like a three-point victory for his team, traveling to Elland Road. In his decision, he emphasized how good the Leeds team was.

After Saturday’s 1-1 tie, Robins remarked, “When you come to a place like Leeds, in any normal circumstance it’s a difficult game, they’re a Premier League team with Premier League quality and pace.”
Because of the way we played and the fact that we were able to build on Wednesday’s performance, we feel like we won the game despite the draw. One less days recovery, credit to them.”
Coventry boss Mark Robins shares what he noticed about Leeds
Leeds played well and easily had enough chances to go and win the game. But, when you only boast a 1-0 lead, there is always a chance – especially in the Championship – that anything can happen. It did.
Coventry played well and while Leeds were the better side, Coventry probably did deserve to get a point from the game. Unfortunately for Leeds, it comes on the horizon of a huge clash against Ipswich Town.
