Coventry City enjoyed a comfortable victory over non-league Boreham Wood as the 1987 FA Cup winners eased into the third round.On-loan Wolves striker Duckens Nazon opened the scoring on 27 minutes, tucking in the rebound, his eighth goal of the season, after goalkeeper Grant Smith had saved from Marc McNulty.McNulty then doubled the lead on 40 minutes, finishing superbly, a lob on the half volley, after an excellent ball over the top from Haiti international Nazon.

Jordan Shipley then rounded off victory on 48 minutes, finishing an excellent move when he turned in McNulty’s far-post cross.Relive Sunday’s FA Cup second round actionNational League side Boreham Wood 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 their thoughts, Wood chairman Danny Hunter having stirred up the hosts in the build-up by saying “I can picture how Coventry City will feel when we knock them out”.But that gave Mark Robins’ men an added incentive and, in front of a crowd of just 2,985 at the Ricoh Arena, they did a thoroughly professional job, sparked by McNulty, who had a hand in all his side’s three goals.Sky Blues boss Mark Robins told BBC Coventry & Warwickshire:”They didn’t allow us to be on the front foot at the start but, once we’d settled down, we were in control.”Marc McNulty’s goal was outstanding. A first touch and a high-class first time finish lifted over the keeper.”We’re in the hat. And it’s the time now when it gets exciting, sitting down to watch Monday night’s draw when all we can ask for is anyone at home.” Boreham Wood manager Luke Garrard told BBC Three Counties:”They’re a phenomenal side. Massive. Former Cup winners. But, if you’re on your day, if you perform and they don’t perform to their level, then you can be the underdog.”I felt for 25 minutes, the majority of the game was played in their half. Then they had two entries into the final third and they got two goals from them.”That showed how clinical they are in terms of forward play, that when they get an opportunity, they can put you to the sword.”Line-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsCoventry1Burge2Grimmer4Willis12Davies24Haynes31Stevenson8DoyleBooked at 22minsSubstituted forBaylissat 84’minutes18NazonBooked at 4minsSubstituted forVincentiat 65’minutes26ShipleySubstituted forKelly-Evansat 71’minutes10McNulty9BiamouSubstitutes7Vincenti13O’Brien15Hyam16Beavon22Kelly-Evans30Bayliss38PonticelliBoreham Wood1Smith8ChampionBooked at 25mins6StephensBooked at 44mins5Wells2Smith4RickettsSubstituted forTurleyat 86’minutes10MurtaghBooked at 90mins7Shakes23TurgottSubstituted forBalantaat 60’minutes24HolmanSubstituted forJeffersat 60’minutes11AndradeSubstitutes3Woodards9Benson13Bozkurt15Jeffers16Sach17Turley19BalantaReferee:Darren HandleyAttendance:2,985Match StatsHome TeamCoventryAway TeamBoreham WoodPossessionHome52%Away48%ShotsHome12Away15Shots on TargetHome8Away3CornersHome4Away6FoulsHome16Away10Live TextPosted at Match ends, Coventry City 3, Boreham Wood 0.Full TimePosted at 90’+5′ Second Half ends, Coventry City 3, Boreham Wood 0.BookingPosted at 90’+4′ Kieran Murtagh (Boreham Wood) is shown the yellow card for a bad foul.Posted at 90’+4′ Devon Kelly-Evans (Coventry City) wins a free kick on the left wing.Posted at 90’+4′ Foul by Kieran Murtagh (Boreham Wood).Posted at 90’+3′ Attempt missed.
