Brighton's Virgo ready to face Man City star Robinho

Brighton defender Adam Virgo is looking forward to facing Manchester City star Robinho in next week's Carling Cup clash.

“I’m not nervous about marking him. I hope he plays because you want to put yourself against the best," said the former Celtic stopper.

“I don’t have any special plans, but as soon as he gets the ball I’ll be aiming to get on him as quickly as possible.”

Virgo added: “We get changed in Portakabins but, to be fair, they are big.

“I’m sure it will be a bit of a culture shock for Robinho. The fans make a lot of noise, but you don’t hear it on the pitch as there are no roofs.

“That means the fans always get soaked when it rains.”
