Robins boss: cup tie is winnable

Robins boss: cup tie is winnable

League One side Bristol City will take on Coventry City at Ashton Gate in the FA Cup 3rd round, and manager Gary Johnson is happy with the draw.

'We will be underdogs against Coventry, but we will fancy our chances,' he said after his side's 2nd round win against Gllingham.

'It's definitely a tie we can look to win.

'They will bring a large contingent of supporters and, while we would have liked one the Premiership giants, we are very happy to have been drawn at home.'

anything can happen in the FA, so who knows? Coventry on their day should still see them off though surely?

Coventry's record against lower league opposition is truly shocking. Should be a great game! I would hope we could win but would not begrudge a Bristol victory. We should be playing them in the league next year anyway.
