FA Cup Upsets and Cupsets #3 – Sutton v Coventry 1989

Winning the 1987 FA Cup is one of the most illustrious achievements in Coventry City’s history, however just eighteen months later they were the victim’s of one of the greatest upsets in the competitions history.

At the time Coventry were an entrenched top flight side and despite an away draw the Midlands side would have expected a relatively passage into the next round when they drew Conference side Sutton in the FA Cup 3rd Round.

The game itself was played at Gander Green Lane in Sutton, Surrey and was full to capacity for the clubs game against top flight opposition.

As is now customary rather than give a blow by blow account of the game I will allow some vintage footage that shows the twist, turns and emotion of one of the most memorable results in FA Cup history.

ChampionshipTalk would love to hear the experiences of any Coventry or Sutton fans who were at the game that day, so if you remember the game please comment or let me know on Twitter.
