Coventry legend Bennett convinced of new Tottenham FA Cup shock

Coventry City legend Dave Bennett is backing the Sky Blues to shock Tottenham again in the FA Cup.

Bennett scored one goal, made another and took the man-of-the-match award when Sky Blues beat Spurs to win the Cup 25 years ago.

It remains the club's only major honour in its 130-year history.

He told The Sun: "The mountain we had to climb was Spurs.

"Going into the final everyone wrote us off. Tottenham were FA Cup invincibles because they had won all seven finals they had appeared in whereas this was Coventry's first-ever final.

"Our attitude was we had nothing to fear and they had everything to lose.

"It's similar now. The pressure will all be on Spurs because no one expects a League One club to win at White Hart Lane.

"But we showed the world we could play at Wembley that day and won an absolute classic 3-2 after extra-time. Anything is possible when you play without fear."
