Coventry 3-1 Aldershot

Coventry cruised into the Carling Cup second round with a comfortable victory over Aldershot.

Clinton Morrison's tap-in, his first goal for the Sky Blues, opened the scoring just after the half-hour mark.

Marvin Morgan's 25-yard deflected free-kick drew the League Two side level shortly after.

But Robbie Simpson converted Daniel Fox's outswinging corner before grabbing his second seven minutes later with a neat finish from 18 yards.
