Coventry City figure explains key decision made in one-sided defeat to QPR



Coventry City boss Mark Robins has explained that he dropped Ben Wilson from the side due to his mindset, according to Coventry Live.

The decision to change the goalkeeper was one of the main talking points from the Sky Blues’ camp as they prepared for the clash with Queens Park Rangers on Good Friday.

Unfortunately for Coventry the afternoon didn’t end well with QPR coming away with a 3-0 victory.

Marko Marosi replaced Wilson in the visiting goal and discussing the alteration Robins insisted that he was happy with how Marosi fared after being drafted in.

Quoted by Coventry Live, Robins said: “Performances in training and just the way they have been in games – mindset.

“And clearly it was a preference between the two today.

“Marko made some good saves and kept us in the game at 2-0. He’ll be disappointed with the third goal but I don’t think he could have done anything about the other two.

“The first goal was obviously the header from Willock and the second the header from Michael Rose, so it’s where we are at the minute.

“It’s something we have to change. We have eight games left now and we have to start picking up points. There comes a time where we have no choice and we’re looking for leaders and looking for men.

“We felt they won everything in their penalty area and won first contact in both boxes, which isn’t what you want as an opposition.”

Who does Callum Wilson play for now?

The verdict

It’s hard to say that this is a decision that paid off.

After conceding three goals against Queens Park Rangers it means that Coventry are being dragged into a relegation battle and so Mark Robins will need to figure out who is best goalkeeper is quickly.

Otherwise they risk the final knockings of the season being a bit of a disaster.
