FOOTBALL: ‘WE’RE desperate to do the City proud’.
That’s the message from Coventry City manager Mark Robins after his side defeated Stoke City 2-1 at the Ricoh Arena.
Goals from Jordan Willis and Jack Grimmer booked the Sky Blues a spot in the fourth round hat.
Speaking after the game, Robins said some ‘unbelievably mature’ performances from his side’s younger players helped his team pick up the win.
He said: “We’re desperate to do the city proud.
“The support for us today was massive, and we need to keep supporters interested.
“It’s a really proud day for me.
“I remember when we played Tottenham in the third round a few years back and we regretted not coming out after them.
“Today we did that and put Stoke under pressure.”
