Mark Robins is looking for Coventry to continue their impressive form when he heads back to Carrow Road.

The former Canaries striker saw his team keep successive clean sheets after a midweek win over Cardiff.

“We want to go there and perform as well as we possibly can do, but we need to take into consideration, fatigue and things like that because the games come so quickly," Robins told his club's official web site.

"They are sitting top of the league at the moment and just come down from the Premier League, they have a squad full of quality so it’s a game we look forward too; on the back of the other night we were really good and showed really good determination and some real good quality, the goal was outstanding.

“On the back of a really good few days for us we go into another game with another challenge.

“The game the other day we knew was going to be a tight game and the two clean sheets at home have been a really big plus for us and the players confidence, it was really important.

“We know we can play and get better; tomorrow is a real good challenge for us and hopefully we can make it a really tough day for them too.”

This will be the Sky Blues third game in the space of a week and Robins will be looking at his side to see how they are coping with busy schedule.

“Hopefully we can preserve everybody’s fitness, but the biggest thing is getting the performance out of them and we have got to look forward to each game,” said Robins

One man who has been in fine form is striker Tyler Walker, who has two goals in his last three games, including the winner against Cardiff.

“He is a good player and there are still elements of his play he could tidy up like his build up play but in front of goal; he is an outstanding finisher so he will only improve," said Robins. “He has been good, and his work rate is outstanding."
