Spurs ease past Coventry

05 January 2013 05:47

Coventry were unable to pull off a repeat of their historic 1987 FA Cup final win as Tottenham crushed the Sky Blues 3-0 at White Hart Lane.

Coventry stunned the eight-time Cup champions 26 years ago in one of the most memorable finals in this illustrious competition, but the Midlanders have fallen a long way since that day.

That was evident in the opening stages as Tottenham controlled the game before taking the lead through Clint Dempsey in the 14th minute. A deflected shot from the American then flew into the path of Gareth Bale, who made it 2-0, before the Welshman returned the favour soon after, setting Dempsey up to make it 3-0.
