Mark Robins has praised the “quality” of his Coventry City side after their 2-1 win over AFC Wimbledon at St. Andrew’s last night.

The Sky Blues have risen to top of League One, a point ahead of Ipswich Town, having won five out of nine games so far this season.

Wimbledon took the lead last night on eight minutes after Marcus Forss slotted home a penalty. However, the hosts equalised on 27 minutes through Jordy Hiwula.

Coventry left it late to bag all three points when midfielder Liam Walsh stroked the ball past Nathan Trott to keep his sides’ perfect home record intact.

Robins was delighted with the win and told their official club website after the game: “The quality that came at the end was real quality, that’s the pleasing thing. Sometimes it’s better to be a lucky team than a good one, I think we were a bit more lucky than good tonight.”

“There’s plenty of work needed but I’ll take the win and the manner of the win. We didn’t launch it forward, we just made one or two changes and started to have a bit more confidence about us.”

He added: “I feel for them at the end because we’ve been there. It’s really tough to take after you put a shift in like that. They had a clear game plan. Fortunately for us, we stuck at it and we passed the ball, even though player’s were having off nights, the crowd stayed with us again and that was a really big thing for us and we got a really good well-worked goal to win it at the end.”
