INTERVIEW: Marc McNulty Previews FA Cup Fifth Round

The Striker looks ahead to the trip to the AMEX...

16 February 2018

This weekend, the Sky Blues return to Emirates FA Cup action as they travel to the AMEX Stadium to face Premier League side, Brighton & Hove Albion.

City progressed to the Fifth Round of the competition after getting past MK Dons in a 1-0 win at Stadium MK a few weeks ago.

Coventry are now the only side left in the FA Cup from League Two and are looking to cause another upset this weekend and get past another Premier League opponent.

City striker, Marc McNulty has featured in all the games in the competition so far and is looking forward to another outing tomorrow afternoon.

He said: “I’m very excited. It’s good sometimes to get away from the league because obviously we’ve had a couple of bad results.

“So to get away from that can be good. I think going away to a Premier League team is a nice tie and is something for everyone to enjoy.

“I think all of the pressure is off us. It’s a free hit if you like. We can go down there and just enjoy it, take in the atmosphere; play against a Premier League side at a nice stadium and who knows what can happen.

“I’ve never played at the AMEX. I’m excited to go down there. I’ve heard a lot of good things so it should be good.”

Mark Robins side travelled down to the AMEX on Friday afternoon, in order to prepare for the clash against the Seagulls.

The Sky Blue army will be travelling down in numbers once again for the game, with an allocation around 4,500 heading down south and McNulty knows how much a  factor the supporters can play heading into the tie.

“Against Stoke and MK Dons they have been massive. Even now, the boys still speak about how important the fans were.

“I don’t think they quite understand how much of a difference it can make for the players, especially when they’re outnumbering the home fans like at MK Dons. It was special for everyone.

“Hats off to the fans, they’ve been great so far this season. They travel in numbers and sold out the tickets straight away. I just hope we can put in a performance that they deserve.”
