Russell Martin
“The challenge for us is to go there and bring a similar identity onto the pitch as we have been doing at home. "It won't be easy, it never is in the Championship, but that is the challenge for us, and it's an exciting one having set the week up well with the performance and result we got against Peterborough." Martin praised the efforts of his Coventry counterpart Mark Robins ahead of this evening's encounter. "I am not surprised at how well Coventry are doing, I faced them in League One (with MK Dons) when they were deservedly promoted," he added. "I have a lot of respect for Mark (Robins) and Adi (Viveash) and the job we have done. It shows the benefit of time and having a clear process and way of working."
