Coventry City manager Mark Robins has said that he is hoping for an away FA Cup Fourth Round tie.

Speaking to BBC Coventry & Warwickshire after the Sky Blues' 2-1 win over Premier League Stoke City in a Third Round tie, Robins, who said that he wants Manchester United, who beat Derby County on Friday ngiht to book their place in Monday's draw, commented: "I think if we can get another good draw away from home then that helps financially because it gets more interest in it, more supporters will show interest and it’s huge for the transfer market.

“For me to be able to compete in the transfer market is vital. I get that revenue and to get that ,the grounds need to be bigger. We’ve got to do that for the supporters.

“We need to put days on like today which keeps them interested and keeps them coming.

"We’re desperate to go up, we’re desperate to do the city of Coventry proud. There is a feel-good factor at the minute with the city of culture announcement and with the football team performing well at the moment.”
