COVENTRY boss Mark Robins, who had management spells at Rotherham United and Barnsley, said he was pleased with his new side’s progress despite seeing them concede a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 at Swindon.
David McGoldrick’s first-half pair set struggling Coventry on course for an unlikely win over Paolo Di Canio’s sixth-place outfit.
But two goals in the space of just three minutes from Gary Roberts and substitute James Collins rescued Swindon.
Robins, who replaced Andy Thorn as permanent boss at the Ricoh Arena last month, said: “I was disappointed with the ending, but three weeks ago we were talking turning losses into draws.
“We were under the cosh in the last 15 minutes, but managed to cope with a strong Swindon side and have a week now to prepare for our next match.”
