Friday 19 April 2024 12:49

Mark Robins is under no illusions about the task facing Coventry City on Sunday, as he fully respects former club Manchester United.

The Sky Blues boss, who masterminded a breathtaking win at Wolves in the quarter-finals, will lead his side out at Wembley, bidding to reach the Midlanders' first final since 1987.

There was a positive update from his press conference to preview the game as midfielder Jamie Allen could feature in the matchday squad for the first time since February.

"Jamie is joining in today," said Robins. "He's been around it again this week and will be part of training today, so we'll see. He may end up sneaking onto the bench."

However, former Chelsea man Kasey Palmer is suspended, after picking up a couple of yellow cards in the competition.

Tatsuhiro Sakamoto remains out, as well, but striker Matty Godden has recovered from a problem.

Speaking to Coventry's official website, Robins said: "For people who say Manchester United are this and that, and concede a lot of shots, you’re talking about a team that are full of talented top international players, that play at that level every week.

"For us, we know they are clearly favourites to win this game, by a million miles, and they are expected to win. We know that, and what we are likely to encounter, but we have to play a part in the game.

"It will be an interesting game but one we have to enjoy and give everything we possibly can."
