"The mood is good in the camp and everyone is looking forward to the biggest game of the season." Coventry City's Lee Burge

The Sky Blues stopper also wants to keep the number one spot for next season...

Coventry City goalkeeper Lee Burge has branded tomorrow's game against Crewe as the "biggest game of the season."

The Sky Blues can secure League One survival with a victory over the Alex at the Ricoh Arena as they currently sit five points away from the drop-zone.

Despite the gap, Burge is not convinced that the Sky Blues are safe without a win tomorrow and admits that he is confident of challenging further up the table next season should City secure their League One status.

"The mood is good in the camp and everyone is looking forward to it," Burge said.

"We're confident of a win to secure our status. We're a big club with a big history and hopefully - if we secure our survival on Saturday - we can push further up the league and really challenge instead of trying to survive, that's our ambition.

"We want to win every game and this is the biggest game of the season, everyone is looking forward to it.

"We've just got to concentrate on ourselves, we're in a good shape of mind and hopefully we won't have to worry about next week and just get the win. We don't want to sit on 52 points and hope that other teams don't win, it's in our hands."

Burge has played 20 times this campaign and has been an ever present under manager Tony Mowbray.

The stopper wants to keep the number one spot for the entirety of next season and thinks that with a good pre-season, he will be able to achieve his goals.

He continued: "I'm going to keep myself fit in the break at the end of the season, come back fit raring to go and make that place mine next season.

"I think since I've been back I've done quite a good job and if the manager stays hopefully he will keep the faith with me.

"I want a good pre-season and you can see the manager's ambitions for next season. That fills us with confidence."
