Callum O’Hare is hoping the Sky Blues can go on a run in the FA Cup as they prepare for this weekend’s tie against Norwich City.
City make the trip to Carrow Road hoping for another positive result against the league leaders as they look to build on the 1-1 draw in a league match in November against the Canaries.
O’Hare spoke to the press earlier today and he told how the squad are feeling optimistic ahead of the game as he feels they made a good account of themselves the last time both sides met.
He said: “It is a massive cup and you want to go there and win and hopefully come home with a cup; you have to take it game by game and hopefully we can go far in the competition, it is a bit annoying without fans but that is football at the minute.
“We went there with no fear and played really well, came away with a point and maybe could have come out with three points, there is nothing to fear tomorrow definitely.
“I want to play football and play in each game but it is the Gaffer’s decision and we will see what happens tomorrow.”
O’Hare feels as if the Sky Blues are able to beat anyone and that the squad are relishing the challenge after having a few days rest.
He said: “The lads can beat anyone and I know it’s not a league game but they are in our league and we have played them before, we can beat anyone on our day.
“You try to win every game and sometimes when you are away you play for the point but this time you have to win and hopefully, we can get the result in 90 minutes.
“We all had a few days rest and we came back in Wednesday and the boys are sharp and ready to go.”
Midfielder Matty James joined the Sky Blues on loan from Leicester on Wednesday, adding vital experience to the squad having played for the Foxes in the Premier League and spent the first part of the campaign at Barnsley.
O’Hare states that James has already settled in well and that his presence can help himself and some of the younger players.
He said: “He can be a top player for us, so calm on the ball and a great footballer for this club; it will help and having experience is great for the team. Especially as most of us don’t have that experience but gained it this year and bringing that extra experience will help us.
“He has settled in really well and the boys have taken to him and he is a nice guy, I think with that experience it will rub off on everyone and definitely for me it will help.
“Hopefully it (on James giving the attackers more freedom) can give us a bit more time on the ball and more space, hopefully we can cause carnage to another team.”
