Coventry dump Blackburn out the FA Cup; Fulham rally to progress past Swansea

Coventry 1 – Blackburn 0 (FA Cup, February 24, 2009) Leon Best was the Sky Blues’ hero, heading home Aron Gunnarsson’s centre just before the hour mark. Sam Allardyce made 11 changes from the team that lost in the league at Manchester United on Saturday, with the Cup seemingly not a priority for the Rovers boss.

Fulham 2 – Swansea 1 (FA Cup, February 24, 2009) Jason Scotland gave Swansea the lead in the 46th minute with a shot from inside the penalty area after latching on to a pass from Mark Gower. But the Premier League side scored two late goals to go through, Clinton Dempsey equalised with a header from a Davies cross and Bobby Zamora hit an 80th minute winner with another header from a Davies cross.
