Coventry captain Carl Baker is confident the Sky Blues will give Arsenal a run for their money in Friday's FA Cup fourth-round meeting at the Emirates Stadium.

Steve Pressley's team head into the tie in good heart after six games unbeaten but they are well aware they will need to produce their best performance in recent memory to dump the Barclays Premier League leaders out of the competition.

A second-string Arsenal side made short work of Coventry in last season's Capital One Cup and are well fancied to go close to that 6-1 scoreline this time out.

But City, backed by more than 5,100 fans, are determined to leave north London with a positive result.

"We have been working on a game plan all week and we are going to make it as difficult as possible for them to break us down," Baker told the club's official website.

"We hope to try and keep as much possession as we can, as we understand we might not have as much of the ball as we normally would due to Arsenal's style of play.

"I have a strong belief that we will go down there with our heads held high and make a good account of ourselves. Hopefully we can send the fans away proud."

Sky Blues midfielder Franck Moussa made his debut in the mauling at the Emirates in September 2012 and he feels the current side is stronger than the outfit that surrendered that night.

Moussa's belief is backed up by Coventry's record on the road this term, which reads just three defeats in 12 League One outings.

"The team has changed a lot since we last played Arsenal. There are a lot of younger players now, established within the first team, that are very hungry," the 24-year-old Belgian said.

"There has also been a change of manager, so some of the tactics and the philosophy of the squad is different.

"This allows us to be confident in going to the Emirates and give a good account of ourselves."
