Super Sky Blues denied at the death

Super Sky Blues denied at the death

Coventry City are into the hat for the FA Cup quarter-finals after a blistering second-half comeback brought them within minutes of knocking out Premier League Blackburn on Saturday.

'To be 2-1 up with only a couple of minutes to go, it feels like a defeat,' said Chris Coleman afterwards.

'But we have managed to take them back to our place, which is something.'

The Sky Blues were off the pace in the opening 45 minutes, perhaps due to a bug that swept the dressing room late on in the week, forcing goalkeeper Kieren Westwood out of the game.

'Keiren could not complete the warm-up,' confirmed Coleman.

'A dozen of them have been sick all night, so it has got to be something they ate yesterday.'
