INTERVIEW: Marc McNulty says he is raring to go against County

The Sky Blues face County at the Ricoh...

11 May 2018

Sky Blues striker Marc McNulty says that his teammates are motivated by the chance to play a final at Wembley as they prepare to face Notts County at the Ricoh.

McNulty has bagged 26 goals so far in a record-breaking season for the 25-year-old, and the former Sheffield United man is raring to get the play-offs underway on Saturday night.

"It is great to be in the play-offs and all the lads are so excited for it," he said.

"It is all about who turns up on the day and it is up for us to go and get it done.

"The boys respond very well to good atmospheres and the fans have been brilliant home and away.

"I do not think there is an advantage or disadvantage for us being at home first. You just have to make sure that you are still in the game after the first game is finished.

"Yes, we are in this to win it. We like playing on the front foot and we never set-up to draw but it would not be the end of the world if we did not win on Saturday. We just need to still be in the tie for the second leg."

McNulty has played in the play-offs twice before with Sheffield United and Portsmouth, so has plenty of experience of fighting to get to Wembley.

"You go through all the emotions, to be honest. You're a bit nervous before the game.

"I have been very lucky to have played in two sell-out games and the whole occasion is one for the players and the fans to enjoy.

"The younger players have been great this season. They have been very consistent and I just hope that they enjoy it."

He added: "We do not need any motivation. We are two games away from Wembley. "
