Coventry City midfielder Jay Tabb has warned West Bromwich Albion they face a Sky Blue backlash when the two sides meet again in two weeks time.
Coventry were thrashed 4-0 on their own ground on Monday as Albion capitalised on Michael Mifsud's sending off to leap to second in the Championship table.
But while most of the West Brom players were humble, Tabb took exception to some of the chanting from the visitors' supporters at Ricoh Arena.
Chants like 'Your ground's too big for you,' and 'We're too good for you' rankled with Tabb and he will use them as inspiration for the return match on December 4.
"The good thing is we have got them again in four games time and we will be well up for it," he said. "We are determined to give a good account of ourselves against them with 11 players on the pitch.
"Their players did a good job and they weren't cocky about it, but it is not nice when you hear their fans singing some of the songs they were singing.
"I know they are only football fans at the end of the day but it was a bit harsh on us because we had worked hard and, certainly, at half time those fans must have thought we were the better side.
"A lot of people might have thought they would have steam rollered us straight away when we went down to ten men but that didn't happen. We really coped with them well for 40 minutes and could have gone in a goal up at half time.
"Full credit to their players because they did their job in the second half, but we are desperate to beat them when we go to their place.
"That is no disrespect to Albion but you always have a point to prove when you get thumped 4-0 and we certainly want to put the record straight when we go back to The Hawthorns."
On a more positive note Tabb and Coventry team-mate Michael Doyle have been selected by the Republic Of Ireland for Tuesday's B International against Scotland at Airdrie United's Excelsior Stadium.
But Michael Mifsud has been suspended for the next three Championship fixtures after being sent off for a reckless elbow against Albion.
