Football doesn't often allow for second chances, but having already been knocked out of The FA Cup once this season Mark Robins is looking forward to another attempt at shocking a Premier League side.
The former Manchester United, Norwich and Leicester forward this week left Coventry to become Huddersfield manager, and his first game in charge is a Fifth Round clash with Wigan.
And it represents a second opportunity for Robins in this season's competition after his Sky Blues team lost 3-0 to Spurs in the Third Round.
But after beating Leicester in their Fourth Round Replay to reach this stage, Robins is full of confidence that his side can upset Roberto Martinez's Premier League outfit.
He said: "I've been knocked out of The FA Cup already this season by Tottenham at White Hart Lane.
"This is a different challenge; Roberto's teams always play good football and it is a game to look forward to.
"I think all games have to be viewed as an opportunity and we get to put our wits against Premier League opposition.
"We were possibly un-fancied the other night against a Leicester side that has been flying, especially as the side suffered a heavy defeat there earlier in the season, but they went there and played really well.
"From what I saw in the second half, the players were more than worth the win."
And Martinez insists he is fully focused on 'the greatest cup competition in the world' despite Wigan being mired in a fight for Premier League survival.
He said: "Whatever team is named at the start of the day has the big ambition to win, and that's the mentality we want to create around the club.
"On the one hand it is a distraction from the league, but it's also the greatest cup competition in the world and therefore one we'll not be taking lightly.
"We've got a good pool of players who are all hungry to play, so the cup competitions become even more important when you factor that in.
"League status won't count for anything on Sunday, so we need to be focused mentally and be ourselves in tough circumstances.
"In previous rounds we've benefitted from having the opportunity to give players the chance to show what they can do and stake a claim for a place in the team once the Premier League returns.
"We've performed well in The Cup this year, and to be fair I thought we deserved to progress further in the League Cup also.
"What that experience taught us is that we need to take care of the small details in every game - Huddersfield have got this far because they are a strong team who can cope with the demands asked of them."
