FAC: Torquay 0-1 Coventry

BY foxsports • January 24, 2009

Elliott Ward scored a late winner as Coventry scraped past non-league Torquay United 1-0 at Plainmoor and into the fifth round of the FA Cup.

The half-time subsitute headed home Daniel Fox's corner in the 87th minute to avoid the embarrassment of a replay against a team three tiers below City.

The Gulls can consider themselves desperately unlucky not to have earned at least a replay, having dominated possession and chances in the second half.
