City midfielder on City V Leeds Michael Doyle has been talking about Coventry City's home game with Leeds United tomorrow at the Ricoh Arena.Doyle, who made fifty appearances for Leeds whilst on loan last season, told the CT: "Leeds are probably a little bit different to when I was there but they have a really good side with some exciting young players. "They have added some experience but there are still a lot of lads from last year who played a big part in getting them promoted, players like Robert Snodgrass, Neil Kilkenny, Bradley Johnson, Jon Howson and Luciano Becchio, and I am sure they are a big part of what they are trying to do this year."He added: "Last year was a brilliant year for me and I know it will be a really tough test for us but with the way we are playing we fancy ourselves against anyone, home or away. "We are on a great run, we're fourth in the league and we are only looking up, so I am quite confident going into the game."The lads are flying with confidence from one to 11 and giving ten out of ten every week so the gaffer can't ask much more from them. //'); //]]>"And this is probably the first time since I have been here that we have looked solid and going into every game with big belief in the team."It starts with the manager and players and that is going on to the fans now who are starting to get excited, and rightly so because we look a dangerous team."The Leeds fans took over every stadium they went to last year and they have sold their allocation at the Ricoh but I think that can only help our players because we enjoy playing in front of a big crowd and in a great atmosphere. "A lot of the fans have stayed away over the years because there has been nothing to sing or cheer about but there is no reason why they won't come back on board now."We took a good couple of thousand up to Sheffield and I have not seen that up there since I have been at Coventry, which is nearly ten years now, so it was brilliant to see. "We want to get a big following like Leeds and teams like Cardiff because it makes all the difference to the players when the fans are right behind you."
