Cranie on Facing Former Club Coventry

3 January 2014

Reds Captain Martin Cranie is set to face his former Club Coventry City tomorrow, as the Sky Blues arrive at Oakwell in the FA Cup 3rd Round.

The 27-year-old, who made 120 appearances for City, will come up against his former employers for the very first time tomorrow.

Speaking to our official matchday magazine, U Reds, Cranie said of his former club, "I’m not too sure how I’ll feel when the time comes to kick-off,” said Cranie. “Everybody at the Club; the Manager, staff, players and fans were brilliant with me. It was just unfortunate that we were relegated in the end. I thought we were good enough to stay up. A lot of individual mistakes cost us. We certainly had good enough players but that’s the nature of the Championship.

“It’ll be nice to see a few old faces, although there aren’t a lot of people left from when I was there. But it’s always nice to come up against your former club. A couple of the young lads that were coming through are there."

Don't forget to pick up your copy of U Reds tomorrow which contains the full interview with Martin Cranie, plus exclusive pre-match notes from Chief Executive, Ben Mansford, and Manager, Danny Wilson.
