Ok, so we lost 2-0 and never really looked as though we could beat Chelsea, but the FA Cup 6th Round tie brought a bit of glamour and the chance to dream for Coventry City fans, after years spent wading through the quicksand of the Championship.

A full-house crowd, a great atmosphere, live terrestrial TV coverage and a good, honest game in which the visitors played their best team and were at least kept honest until the final whistle.

It showed what could be at the Ricoh Arena and was undoubtedly the highlight to date of the Sky Blues’ tenure at their ‘new’ stadium.
