Luke Berry scores four as Cambridge crush Coventry in the FA Cup

Midfielder Luke Berry struck all four goals as Cambridge blew away League One Coventry 4-0 in the FA Cup.

Fresh from scoring twice in the second half last week, Berry gave the U's the perfect start by prodding home George Maris' superb cross from the left in the seventh minute.

He doubled the lead on 29 minutes, sending Lee Burge the wrong way from the penalty spot after he was pulled down by Cian Harries.

Berry completed his treble seven minutes before half-time, drilling a fine finish across Burge after being played through by Piero Mingoia.

He could had another moments into the second half but his header from another Maris delivery was tipped over the bar by an excellent Burge save, but he was not to be denied a fourth four minutes from the end.

Brad Halliday's storming run out of defence culminated in a perfect cross for Berry to sweep home at the back post, sealing Cambridge's progress to the third round for the second time in three years.
