"I think we're starting to turn a corner. We're all desperate to win." Coventry City's Gary Madine

10 December 2014

The Sky Blues loanee also believes that the pitch at Ashton Gate could help City as they look to build form before Christmas...

Coventry City striker Gary Madine has revealed that the players are desperate to beat Bristol City and get to the Johnstone's Paint Trophy Area Final.

The Sky Blues last reached the Area-final in February 2013, where a near sell-out crowd of 31,054 at the Ricoh Arena watched on as City were beaten by Crewe Alexandra

But Madine, who has netted twice in five games since joining from Sheffield Wednesday on loan, admitted they can reach the the final once more, saying that the playing surface at Ashton Gate could help the Sky Blues' chances as they look to hit form ahead of the festive period.

"I think we're starting to turn a corner," Madine said. 

"Tomorrow we'll have a good pitch at Bristol which we hope will bring the best out of us and our style of play.

"There's still more to come from us all, we have some quality players here and it's a great occasion. 

"Hopefully we can go through, we know it will be tough but we're beginning to find some form. We're all desperate to win the game to get through and it gives us a great chance of some success.

"The training is as intense as ever and everyone is really looking forward to getting out there on a good pitch. We want to show what we can do."
