What was said?
Heading into the play-off final, Robins declared that the game was ‘one for the romantics.’
‘People talk about journeys, where we come from,’ Robins told BBC CWR.
‘It’s for romantics. Luton come from the National League. I remember it well; Mick Harford was in charge, 30-point deductions, it’s been a tough road for them but it’s been a tough road for us and we’ve had our own woes over the years.
‘Hopefully we can come up with a game and take a good step back into the Premier League. We’re just a game, they’re just a game. To be a part of that game was incredible.’

Rob Edwards hopes the fans can make a big difference and follow the team from the start
As for Luton, Rob Edwards hopes the fans can make a big difference and get behind the team from the first whistle.
‘Our away form is as good as our home form and we will have over 36,000 people behind us, I feel we will be supported more,’ said Edwards in his pre-match press conference.
‘I know Coventry will have the same, but it will make for a great atmosphere and so far this season, the lads have really stepped up in big games and big occasions, it’s brought out the best in them.
‘Last week was a good example of that, Watford here or Sheffield United away, they’ve done well in big games and hopefully we can do one more, in the biggest of them all.’
Coventry to win – 21/10
Luton to win – 29/20
Coventry to win each half, Viktor Gyokeres to score and Coventry to have most corners in each half – 125/1
