Rugby Town progressed to the next round of the Emirates FA Cup with a hard-fought win over Coventry United at the Butts Park Arena.
Carl Adams' side were good value for a victory by the same scoreline as the previous year at the Butts Park Arena, with a Danico Johnson double securing Valley a home tie against Evesham in the next round.
Rugby's line-up showed four changes from the previous outing at Leicester Nirvana, with Daniel Kavanagh, Stefan Blake, Justin Marsden and Charlie Evans all starting for the first time this season.
It was the hosts that created the first chance of the game though, when Shaquille McDonald ran onto a quick United free-kick only to drag his effort wide of the post.
However Valley were soon in front, after Blake threaded the ball through the centre of the home defence to find Evans - who laid it onto Johnson to apply a powerful low finish past Jack Tregartha.
Roles were reversed shortly after with Johnson teeing up Evans, but the ex-Stratford man did not get hold of his volley properly and Tregartha was able to easily gather.
Lewis Rankin looped a header to Evans's cross over the bar as Town's dominance continued, although there were still warning signs at the other end of the pitch when keeper Matt Hill was well-positioned to deal with a Dominic Perkins error to prevent McDonald from a run on goal.
With the half-time whistle rapidly approaching, United were awarded a free-kick in a central position on the edge of the penalty area.
Robert Prinzel's set-piece strike cannoned into the defensive wall, with Curvin Edwards reacting quickest to dispatch a spectacular overhead kick past Hill for the equaliser.
From the restart Town responded well to the setback and were dangerous from the off.
A strong headed clearance by Perkins was neatly flicked on by Rankin into the path of Evans, but Tregartha was equal to the final shot, and Johnson also stabbed one into the side netting.
Johnson then hit the base of the United post after Evans had again done well to set him up, with Rankin almost squeezing one past Tregartha from a tight angle following his jinking run from a wide position.
Marsden and Blake both had wayward efforts, before the goal finally came on 64 minutes when Blake's clever chipped pass was taken on by Johnson - who took his time before firing home again.
The home side were reduced to ten men, when Tregartha was shown a red card for taking out the hat-trick hunting Johnson when the striker had run onto Luke Edwards' long ball over the top, with Marsden putting the resulting free-kick high of the target.
Whilst United did rally a little for the remainder of the game, the visitors generally coped well with this.
The late Coventry mini-flurry saw Hill get a vital fingertip to a cross from Gift Mussa, Edwards executing a perfectly timed tackle to thwart Ellis in the box and Prinzel head over, but in the end it was much deserved success for Town.
