INTERVIEW: Marc McNulty Looks Ahead To Play-Off Final

The Striker is looking to help secure Sky Blues promotion...

26 May 2018

The Sky Blues top scorer, Marc McNulty has admitted he hasn’t stopped thinking about the Play-Off Final since City booked their place after beating Notts County.

The striker scored a decisive equaliser in the home leg against the Magpies and also got the second in the game at Meadow Lane.

Talking to TalkSport, Sparky said he would be lying if he said he didn’t want to score at Wembley, however as long as him and his team mates gain promotion he couldn’t care.

He said: “I’m buzzing.

“All I’ve been thinking about since the final whistle on Friday is getting to Wembley. As a kid growing up all you dream of doing is playing at national stadiums and it’ll be the first time for me.

“It’d be nice to get the winning goal but we all just want to win and get promoted so badly that I really don’t care who scores as long as we win. I’m not that selfish!

“I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want to score though, so if that does happen it’ll be the cherry on the top of the cake.

“I wasn’t here last year but the boys and manager have spoken about how they took a huge following and did brilliantly,” he said, talking about the Checkatrade Trophy victory over Oxford United.

“It’ll be the exact same though as we have to turn up, play as we normally would and try to be at our best.

“I wasn’t born to remember the FA Cup in 1987 but Oggy never shuts up about it, so I’ve heard quite a lot about it as you would expect.

“It’s a nice record to have but that goes out the window on Monday and we have to concentrate on beating a good Exeter side.”

Sparky, who was recently named the PFA Fans’ Player of the Year has scored 28 goals in all competitions for City, becoming the first player to reach 20 goals since Dion Dublin.

One of the key reasons he puts down to his goal scoring form, is the advice he has been given from his manager, Mark Robins.

“The manager’s done brilliant for the club,” he said.

“He did well in his first spell and he’s really turned it round this time as well.

“For me, as a fellow striker, he’s been great. At the start of the season it wasn’t quite going great for me and I got a bit of stick but that’s football and getting over that was hugely down to the manager.

“He gives me little tips every day. He’ll ask me, could you have done anything different there? Or why didn’t you shoot like this instead etc?

“He’ll put on finishing drills at the end of the day too. His knowledge and the fact he was a top player in his position in his day has really benefitted me.”
