Sky Blues boss: We'll have a go

Sky Blues boss: We'll have a go

Coventry City manager Iain Dowie believes that the 11,000+ away supporters following his side to Old Trafford on Wednesday means he has to send out a side that can attack Manchester United.

'Playing in the Carling Cup doesn't take the pressure off, but it will hopefully help us get back to some decent away form,' he said.

'It is a really difficult game. Of any draw it would be the most difficult, that and Arsenal away, Liverpool away or Chelsea away.

'Those four are the tough draws so from our point of view, we've got to go there and enjoy it and take a bit of attacking intent. You can't go there and just shut up shop because it won't quite be his 'A string' but we'll have to have a good day and they'll have to have an off-day for us to get anything out of it.

'I do think it's important that we go there with some attacking intent, particularly because we're taking 11,500 with us.'

We have to have a go and I think Mifsud has to play if fit. He is capable of giving any defence problems.

Trying to defend would be madness judging by Saturday's circus!
