Coventry captain Carl Baker has hope that the Sky Blues can secure a famous upset at Tottenham tomorrow.
The 29-year-old believes that if his side can keep their discipline and shape then they can claim a positive result.
“We won’t be there to just make up the numbers as we need to represent this club in the right way and in every game we play,” Baker told the club’s official website.
“The side are playing some really good football at the moment and even though we lost last time out, this club hasn’t seen this sort of form for a very long time.
“We have worked hard in training on our shape and discipline. We know we need to be strict in our positions because if we try and go ‘gung-ho’ from the opening minute, we will probably get punished.
“Anything can happen in football and I know they will be strong favourites but it is 11 v 11 and they are only human so we have to make sure we perform to our best if they don’t.
“We have been scoring freely away from home so there isn’t a reason why they shouldn’t watch out for us. We will pose them problems and make sure our fans will be proud of us at the end of the day.”
