Coventry   2 - 1   Crystal Palace

Keiren Westwood saved a late penalty as Coventry held off a spirited Crystal Palace fightback to reach the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Freddy Eastwood converted from Gary McSheffrey's pull-back to put City in the lead and two minutes later Carl Baker's back-post volley made it 2-0.

Neil Danns poked the ball in with nine minutes remaining to give Palace hope.

But moments later his weak penalty was easily saved by Westwood and he then somehow headed wide from two yards.

It was an astonishing end to a game that the Sky Blues had looked set to win with ease after their two early first-half goals.

Lukas Jutkiewicz had already seen a header hit the underside of the crossbar before Eastwood scored the opener after McSheffrey had beaten a defender and pulled the ball back from the byeline.

606: DEBATE
Coventry Premier League 2011

In the 17th minute, Eastwood turned provider, his deep cross inviting Baker to hit a stunning shot past Julian Speroni in the Palace goal.

Andy Dorman nudged a shot past Westwood, and the post, as Palace fought to get back in the game after the break.

With time running out, Danns scored his sixth goal of the season, stabbing the ball home after Westwood had failed to hold his initial shot.

But his hopes of being Palace's hero were snuffed out when his penalty, awarded after Sky Blues debutant Stephen O'Halloran had brought down Wilfried Zaha, was saved and he then inexplicably missed from a couple of yards with a header.
