Last updated : 05 January 2012 By Covsupport News Service

Coventry City defender Martin Cranie has said that he is looking forward to the FA Cup Third Round tie with Southampton on Saturday. 

Cranie who is another product of Southampton’s youth team which has produced the likes of Arsenal and England’s Theo Walcott told Sky Blue Player: "I still know a few of the lads down there as a few of the boys played in the youth team with me.

"It will be a good game and as I say, there is no pressure really and it will be a chance to go out and enjoy ourselves and hopefully get through. 

"The FA Youth Cup final was a highlight when I was down there. As I said, it will be a chance to see a few old faces and hopefully get the win.

"Lukas (Jutkiewicz) will be looking forward to it as well with his Southampton connections so it will be good to get a win over them. 

"They are a good football team and they wouldn't be where they are if they weren't. They have had a bit of a slump though recently, so hopefully we can take advantage of that."
