Coventry boss Iain Dowie is hoping his old club West Ham can go on to Carling Cup glory at Wembley next spring after they ended his own side´s hopes at the Ricoh Arena on Tuesday night.

Carlton Cole struck in injury-time to give the Hammers a fortunate 2-1 win, which swept them into the quarter-final.

"I am a West Ham fan, so now I hope they go on and win it," said Dowie, "But for a blink of an eye it might have been us."
