Robinson on Mariners and consistency

Head coach Carl Robinson on Tuesday night's fixture against the Mariners and building momentum at the right time. 

Robinson has had just two days to prepare the Wanderers for their next fixture at Central Coast Stadium with the Red & Black expecting a well-drilled opponent. 

"Listen they're a good team (Central Coast), they've got good players and obviously they're very coached as well," said Robinson. 

"I've only been here a brief time, last year with my last ten games of the season, and what I'll say in every game that I was involved in last year, they were very close. 

"I think we probably had better chances in the first game and we lost so I don't really worry about that too much. 

"I think on Saturday against our closest rivals, our local rivals, our bitter rivals, it was a very tense game. 

"They had chances to probably go ahead in the first half and we had chances to win it in the end and we looked very very strong towards the last 20 minutes of the game as well."

A win on Tuesday night could see the Wanderers jump to the top of the table, but for Robinson and his men it's all about being consistent and peaking at the right time. 

"The league is very tight at the moment, it's about trying to implement the way you want to play and picking up results," explained Robinson. 

"There's no point in being in really good form in the early part of the season.

"If you're going to hit a period over the course of the season, where you're going to slump a little bit and it's about getting on little momentum runs where you can.

"Whether that's winning or losing, getting out of that momentum run if you are losing games.

"So we've just got to be more consistent and we know that."
