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. Following the fight, Thomas discussed it and said that Summerville had shown him “no respect” by ignoring him.
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. Well done, they recovered in one less day.
Mark Robins, the boss of Coventry, discusses his observations regarding Leeds.
Leeds performed admirably and had plenty of opportunities to win the match. Nevertheless, anything can happen when you only have a 1-0 advantage, particularly in the Championship. Yes, it did.
Leeds was the superior team, although Coventry gave it their best shot and most likely deserved a point. Unfortunately, Leeds will soon face a formidable opponent in Ipswich Town.
