Coventry City goalkeeper and FA Cup winner Steve Ogrizovic will lead the Sky Blues out at Wembley against Oxford United at Sunday’s Checkatrade Trophy final clash.
The goalkeeper helped the club win the FA cup back in 1987, and has made 500 appearances for the Sky Blues between 1984-2000.
Ogrizovic will lead the team out on Sunday alongside manager Mark Robins.
“It’s going to be a special day. We’re really looking forward to it,” Ogrizovic said.
“It’s been a disappointing season. We’re going to forget that. Let’s enjoy it and put a smile on fans’ faces. We’re not covering over the cracks.”
“How will the team react in front of a full house at Wembley? How will Oxford react? Nobody knows.”
“If we do go a goal down. Don’t drop heads. That’s what we did in our cup final.”
“You don’t bring 40,000 to a cup final if there’s not a fan base. It’s a one club city. It’s unfortunate what’s happened – there’s so many reasons.”
“At some stage this club will turn around. I get nervous for a golf game – you never know what’s going to happen. The adrenaline will be there. There will be a few nerves,” he concluded.
