Mark Robins made a Premier League vow just hours after guiding Coventry out of League Two, former captain Michael Doyle has revealed.The ex-Sky Blues midfielder skippered the club to their first promotion in 51 years in 2018 to kick-start their journey to the brink of a top-flight return.Coventry beat Exeter 3-1 in the play-off final with Doyle lifting the trophy at Wembley and the Sky Blues are now dreaming of a repeat in Saturday’s Championship play-off final against Luton.Robins, who signed a new four-year deal this month, took them out of the fourth tier at the first attempt after returning 14 months earlier for a second spell and, even then, outlined his vision to Doyle.He told the PA news agency: “The night we got promoted from League Two we were chatting away at the bar, something came up and he said: ‘we’re going to take this club back to the Premier League where it belongs’.“You don’t say things like that lightly and it’s not arrogance because he’s not an arrogant man.

He wouldn’t say that openly to a lot of people.“I’ve reminded him of that this week because we were a million miles away from it that night and now we’re on the verge of it.

I hope he can do it.“I do think eventually the club will get there, even if it’s not Saturday. The club is in good hands with four more years of him there.

He is a god to the people of Coventry.“Like any manager, pressure does come with the job and when he’s p****d off at you, you’re going to know about it.
