Mark Robins rejoins Coventry Cityby Mick Bates / 06 March 2017, 10:53Tweet
Just a day after announcing the departure of manager Russell Slade, the Midlands based club have confirmed that they will be bringing back former manager Mark Robins. He is understood to be returning to the club on a contract that will take him "beyond the current season".
Robins first took charge of the Sky Blues back in September 2012 before he was tempted away to join Huddersfield Town less than five months into his three-year contract. During his short time in charge (146 days) he took the club from the dangers of being in a relegation battle to just outside the play-offs.
He returns to the Ricoh Arena with the club currently 13 points adrift from safety and in the bottom slot in the League One table, having recorded only one League win under Slade. However, he does possess the one of the best win % of any recent manager of the club. During his first tenure, he took control of 25 games, winning 13 of them, drawing 5 and losing just 7 to give him an impressive 52% win percentage - a far cry from the abysmal 18.75% that City had recorded under the departed Russell Slade (all competitions).
Robins will take control of the team for their home game against Bradford City on Saturday.
