City defender Richard Wood says boss Mark Robins has instilled self belief in the squad

Coventry City defender Richard Wood says the chance to play at Wembley is a fantastic carrot for the Sky Blues as they prepare for their Johnstone's Paint Trophy regional quarter final at home to Sheffield United on Tuesday night.

City host the Blades at the Ricoh Arena looking to take another step towards a Wembley final and while Wood said a 'march to the arch' would be an exciting prospect, he would be treating the midweek cup clash as just another game.

"We know Sheffield United are a strong team but we will be doing our best to get through," he said.

"We've got to stay strong and make sure we play our football because we want to do well and progress. There's a day out at Wembley to play for but we are just looking at it as wanting to win games no matter what competition it is whether it's the cup or the league.

"Every player wants to play in the best stadiums and Wembley is certainly one of those and the football club has not had much luck in terms of winning things in recent years so it's something for us to aim for for the fans and for ourselves.

Wood also highlighted the influence of boss Mark Robins and added that his working methods were starting to pay dividends on the training ground and in games.

"He's instilled self belief in all of us. We're working hard all the time and he uses the word momentum quite a lot. There's a different outlook on things at the moment and we're getting results because of that."
