Coventry return to the Championship possible next season, says Mark Robins

Coventry boss Mark Robins says there is no reason why the club can not achieve back-to-back promotions and return to the Championship

Coventry City celebrated their first promotion in 51 years with an open-top bus parade through the city on Wednesday but their manager Mark Robins is already dreaming of a return to the Championship.

The Sky Blues secured a place in League One next season with a 3-1 victory in the League Two play-off final against Exeter City on Monday.

Coventry, who were victorious at Wembley last season in the Checkatrade Trophy, booked an immediate return to the third tier, having been relegated in abject fashion last year.

Robins told Sky Sports News: “It is overwhelming. It is massive the connection between the supporters and the players.

“They have been desperate for some success. We have given them a little bit of success, can you imagine what it will be like when we get to the Championship? Hopefully we can do it next season.

“With this backing, there is no reason we can’t keep going. There is energy around the football club which has been massive.

“If the players and the supporters are in harmony, you can achieve what you want.

“The club has been on a difficult patch and to stop and turn it means a hell of a lot.

“It gives you that motivation and determination to keep going. If we can harness that energy then anything can be achieved.”
