A sickness bug may have kept them up all night, but Coventry City’s players turned in a superb performance in front of over 5,000 travelling fans at Blackburn, a 2-2 draw meaning a replay at the Ricoh Arena for a place in the last eight.

Aron Gunnarsson’s outstanding display in the centre of the park, coupled with a great equaliser early in the second-half, led to the Icelander being linked almost immediately with a summer move to Ewood Park!

Michael Doyle then put City in front before an injury-time equaliser that was a hammer blow at the time but in hindsight allowed the Sky Blues the chance of a great FA Cup night at home in the replay.
