Coventry, la la la...

Sir Alex Ferguson has chanced his luck with weakened teams in the Carling Cup before and emerged unscathed, but Coventry City's "Mosquito" left him feeling the painful consequences of his latest first-team tinkering as Iain Dowie's team claimed the scalp of the Premier League champions with two goals from their Maltese forward, Michael Mifsud.

Mifsud, nicknamed Mosquito by the Coventry assistant manager, Tim Flowers, for his frenetic style of play, scored a goal in either half as Ferguson's collection of youngsters and fringe players fell victim to lower-league opposition at Old Trafford for the first time since York City triumphed 3-0 at the ground in the same competition 12 years ago.
