Coventry City manager Mark Robins admitted to being proud as the Sky Blues stormed into Round Four of the FA Cup with a 2-1 over Stoke City.
Speaking to the Press Association, Robins said: "'I'm proud. "Regardless of the current troubles of Stoke and the pressure on them, we equipped ourselves really well.
"We went toe-to-toe with them. We could have been 3-0 up in the first half.
"They put pressure on us in the second half were able to bring on a wealth of experience from their bench. But then we got the second on the counter. The boys threw themselves at everything and we're in the hat for the next round.
"Clearly, the only way to quieten down the noise around the club is to win games. We need to turn it around and quickly. We're good enough in this league - we've proved it during my tenure - but we've got to be better in key moments.
"Credit to Coventry. They deserved the win for defending manfully and putting bodies on the line. I wish them well."
