New Terriers boss Robins thought his Wembley dream was over when old club Coventry crashed to a third-round defeat at Tottenham last month.
But he finds himself back in the world’s most famous cup competition after quitting the Sky Blues to succeed Simon Grayson.
Tomorrow’s fifth-round tie at home to Wigan will be the ex-Manchester United striker’s first in the Terriers hotseat.
He said: “Strange, isn’t it? I get knocked out of the FA Cup once this season at Spurs and here I am back in it and getting another chance.
“It is going to be a different game to that one at Tottenham.
“Everybody knows Roberto Martinez’s teams always play good football, so it promises to be a cracking game.
“Whatever else, it is another opportunity to play against Premier League opposition and pit your wits against top players.”
