At just 18 Tom Bayliss is so highly rated that Coventry rejected two Championship clubs bids

"There won't be too many players of my age that played, or have played for a period of time, that won't be able to say they weren't on the back of a real bad one and certainly I have as a manager".

"Rather than parking the bus, we wanted to come and take part in the game".

"We all know that three, four days later, you're on to other things and it can be swamped by everything else, but it's a awful experience and you don't want to go through that too often".

"If we didn't go into the game feeling it was winnable then there would be no point going".

Albion progressed with goals from debutant Jurgen Locadia, Connor Goldson and Leonardo Ulloa but Coventry hit the woodwork twice, before Jonson Clarke-Harris scored a late consolation.

Robins' squad has been stretched by injuries to 36-year-old Michael Doyle and Jack Grimmer, who scored the victor against Stoke, with neither player likely to overcome their respective knee and hamstring issues.

Coventry loanee Jordan Maguire-Drew is unavailable to face his parent club while Kyel Reid is cup-tied from his loan spell at Colchester United.

Brighton and Hove Albion head coach Chris Hughton was delighted for new signing Jurgen Locadia after the forward netted a debut goal.

Coventry have already eliminated Premier League opposition this season (Stoke in the third round).

"We'd won the cup on a few occasions before; for them it was a massive, massive occasion and whenever I'm around anything to do with Coventry that's the one that's always brought back, that '87 cup final". No fourth tier or lower side has eliminated two top-flight clubs in the same FA Cup campaign before (since fourth tier was introduced in 1958-59).

Brighton are unbeaten in their last four matches in all competitions (W2 D2), this after losing consecutive games to West Brom and Chelsea in the Premier League.

Brighton have now only lost two of their past 16 FA Cup home games, with both defeats coming at the hands of Arsenal.

"A real coup for Coventry and a very disappointing day".

"I know they've been unfortunate and we've been a little bit lucky at times where they've had opportunities but I thought we were really good".
