“There will be a huge atmosphere at Bramall Lane, just like the weekend, and we’re hoping to cause an upset.” - Coventry City's Lee Burge

Sky Blues 'keeper confident of extending winning run, but wary of Blades' threats...

City’s saviour between the sticks on Sunday afternoon, Lee Burge and troops are back in action just three days later with a trip to table topping Sheffield United tomorrow.

The Sky Blues need to claim all three points if they are to have any chance of avoiding the drop, and the 24-year old is keen to use the Wembley experience as encouragement for the final six league encounters. 

Lee Burge said: “Still haven’t quite got over Sunday, we’re still enjoying it. It was a crazy experience, I haven’t got words to describe it.

“It is what dreams are made of, the build up, the lads were excellent. We defended well as a team, the whole experience was brilliant.

“They had a corner, and I saw Josh Ruffles get a head to it. I knew I couldn’t let him score, I’d never hear the end of it. Had to keep it out, and Gael also did well on the line.

“There will be a huge atmosphere at Bramall Lane, just like the weekend. They are pushing for promotion, but we have to keep going, and we’re hoping to cause an upset.”

The focus turns entirely to the remainder of the League One schedule now, as City enter their final stretch off the back of three straight wins in all competitions. 

Burge added: “We all knew there was a league game straight after, we had to get back in to training soon after and be professional about it.

“We can take this momentum in to tomorrow, we know John Fleck who is their key man, and Billy Sharp is in good form. If we keep them quiet, we’ll have a good chance.

“The lads have to be aggressive, bright and sharp, keep a good shape like we did on Sunday. We should go and believe we can beat them, gave them a good run last time and matched them.”
