City Boss Mark Robins was full of appreciation for the support his side will receive on Monday and praised the connection between his players and the supporters.

He said: “The biggest thing for me is the reconnection of the fans and the players because that’s powerful and it can be really powerful.

“You’re talking about the 12th man and that really is the 12th man that connection between the fans and the players which is phenomenal.

“In football terms and from the supporter point of view, they’ve been long suffering and it would be a big step and I think we’ve taken a big step already, but I think it really would be a big step then to finish off the job, but we don’t expect anything, we have to make sure we earn that and earn it against a good footballing team.

“I think also it has helped having some of the local young lads in the team because they understand it and they are coming in fresh and they understand that.

“When we go to Wembley they will know that most of them supporters are friends and family and they will know them. I’ve started to know them and I’m looking on the television at the Notts County game and I’m like I know him and I know him and it’s brilliant.“
