2017/18 English FA Cup, Round 2
  • Duckens Nazon (27')
  • Marc McNulty (40')
  • Jordan Shipley (48')

Former winners Coventry safely through to third round of FA Cup

A stunning strike from Marc McNulty helped Coventry to a comfortable 3-0 FA Cup victory against Boreham Wood.
The National League outfit were playing in only their third second-round clash - their joint best run in the competition.
A tasty third-round clash against a Premier League giant was high in the thoughts, with chairman Danny Hunter saying "I can picture how Coventry City will feel when we knock them out" in the build-up to the game.
That gave Mark Robins' men an added incentive and a thoroughly professional performance did the job at the Ricoh.
After some nervy moments early on, Duckens Nazon opened the scoring after 27 minutes as he raced on to McNulty's rebound to fire home.
The nerves were well and truly settled after McNulty's fine solo second as he lobbed goalkeeper Grant Smith.
And McNulty turned provider for the third as Jordan Shipley put the game to bed from six yards shortly after the restart.
