Go for it City!

It's the biggest game that Coventry City have been involved in since relegation from the Premier League, with a full house at the Ricoh Arena and the prospect of a Wembley semi-final to come if we can pull off a shock against Chelsea.

'This is not an impossible task,' Chris Coleman told the press on Friday.

'It is difficult and, of course, they will be fancied team. but it doesn't mean they are unbeatable.

'Chelsea will pay us the respect we deserve and rightly so but they won't relish coming here with the type of atmosphere we can create in the Ricoh Arena.'

Let's hope the Sky Blues create the right impression on the watching millions, whatever the result, and that the momentum generated by recent games means there are more fixtures like this to come in the future.

Give it a go lads you've nothing to lose. Nobody expects you to win so what the hell. They are not in the best of form so you never know - good luck - hope that at least one sky blue shirt team can win the cup this year.

No complaints about the result but a good day nevertheless. A good cup tie played in the right spirit and great backing from both sets of fans.
