Queens Park Rangers are reportedly eager about appointing Mark Robins as Michael Beale’s successor and the Englishman may repair a evident difficulty at Loftus Highway.
Whereas it would show tough to prise Robins away from the high-flying Sky Blues, reports definitely recommend that he is without doubt one of the major candidates to take over in west London, following Beale’s transfer to Glasgow Rangers final week.
Robins has taken Coventry from League Two to the Championship throughout his time at the club and it appears as if a outstanding journey to the Premier League may properly be on the playing cards when you think about their begin to the present marketing campaign.
Journalist Richard Keys was filled with reward for the job that the 52-year-old has completed at Coventry earlier this yr.
He said: “Robins is without doubt one of the brightest and greatest coaches exterior the Premier League. He’s completed a unprecedented job cleansing up a wasted decade inflicted by SISU.”
Regardless of seeing various video games referred to as off early within the season, Coventry at the moment sit 12th within the second tier forward of this weekend’s fixtures.
Do you suppose Robins can be appointment?
Forward of the World Cup break, Robins’ facet would impressively win every of their final 4 video games with out conceding a single objective, together with a 2-0 conquer QPR, and their excellent defensive file is without doubt one of the major causes behind their sensible latest type.
Solely Preston North Finish have saved greater than Coventry’s 10 clear sheets this season, though it’s the Sky Blues that boast the most effective clear sheet proportion within the league, having managed to maintain the opposition out in additional than half of their video games.
Though QPR at the moment sit two factors and 6 locations above them within the second tier, the Rs have managed simply five clear sheets in 21 league video games this season – with solely three groups preserving fewer – which means that defence is a key difficulty for the Hoops.
Subsequently, if Robins had been to reach at Loftus Highway, you’d hope that he would look to amend this difficulty, as QPR don’t have any likelihood of promotion in the event that they hold conceding so many objectives, with Sir Alex Ferguson maybe placing it greatest when he said that “assault wins you video games, defence wins you titles.”
