15 May 2014

Check out #8 of our compiled list of the Sky Blues top ten moments on the pitch throughout the 2013/14 season

Now is the time to check out our number eight entry into our countdown of the Top Ten Sky Blues footballing moments of 2013/14!

For this one, we move away from League One and focus our attention on the FA Cup.

More than 2,500 travelling members of the Sky Blue Army experienced it. Our number eight is...

#8 - The last minute winner at Barnsley!

The 2-1 FA Cup third round win at Oakwell embodied the lustre of the FA Cup as the Sky Blues overcame a one-goal half-time deficit against higher league opposition to turn the game on it's head with a late second half surge.

Many said City were fortunate to only be a goal down at the break but a second half rally put paid to that theory when Franck Moussa levelled and Leon Clarke netted an 89th-minute winner in front of 2,632 City fans in the away end to set up a fourth round trip to face eventual finalists Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

Moussa applied a super-cool top corner finish with 12 minutes to go to cancel out Jim O'Brien's 19th-minute opener and then Clarke, who had been knocking on the door all afternoon, was put through to race between two defenders and slot home a finish with a minute of normal time remaining.

The Sky Blue Army were delirious. So were we. A good afternoon!
