Coventry clinched an FA Cup quarter-final home meeting with Chelsea after Leon Best's second-half goal earned them a deserved 1-0 replay victory over a radically changed Blackburn.

Best - wearing a face mask to protect his fractured cheekbone - headed home a 69th minute cross from Jordan Henderson to seal the Sky Blues' place in the last eight for the first time in 11 years.

Chris Coleman's side were worthy winners against a Blackburn line-up which showed 11 changes from the starting line-up against Manchester United in the Barclays Premier League at the weekend.
