Coventry City Beat Manchester United

*picture from BBC website.

Coventry City have gone through to the final sixteen of the Carling Cup after a sensational 0-2 victory in front of a 74,000 crowd at Old Trafford. Michael Mifsud scored in the 27th and 70th minute, causing the 11,000 travelling Coventry City football fans to celebrate in style.

After two league defeats, Coventry came out attacking and gave everything to Alex Ferguson's Manchester United. Although it was mostly the youth team, it still featured six international players, who seemed to have under estimated a determined Iain Dowie side. The supporters were 100% behind Coventry and in turn, the players and manager acknowledged this by delivering a result for Coventry that was reminiscent of the 1987 FA Cup final victory against Tottenham.

Well done Sky Blues!
