Boreham Wood’s chairman says he can picture how Coventry City will feel when they’re knocked out of the FA Cup on Sunday.

Danny Hunter dares to dream that his Vanarama National League club can pull off another shock result after Wood’s first round victory over League One Blackpool set up another potential upset when they travel to take on Mark Robins’ Sky Blues at the Ricoh Arena.

Boreham Wood have caused great excitement in the town, with Hunter issuing a rallying cry for the townsfolk to mobilise and get themselves up to Coventry for their big day out.

“I hope the town does what it did against Blackpool and really turns out for us,” he told the club’s website.

“I hope the players now genuinely believe in not only themselves, but in our club philosophy regarding attitude, discipline and desire, because if they do then we’re in for one hell of a day.

“When I enquired about cup tickets sold and coach seats booked I was told that the town is mobilising for the game and we are now possibly taking six coach loads of supporters up to the Ricoh Arena.

“But just as importantly, we’re also taking up our mencap and community groups with us and that pleases me immensely because it means everybody is involved and everyone is included.

“As I understand it, we’ve also got hundreds who’ve bought their train tickets already and plenty of cars are full and will be heading up the M1, so it’s an exciting time for us all and we’ll definitely have a voice up there on the day.”
