Jordan Ponticelli's double helps Coventry down Maidenhead in FA Cup

Two Jordan Ponticelli goals helped Coventry ease into the FA Cup second round after a 2-0 win over Maidenhead.
Ponticelli hit a brace inside 12 first-half minutes as the 1987 winners secured a routine win against the National League side.
The Sky Blues started strongly with Jake Goodman clearing a Marc McNulty shot off the line in the 11th minute.
McNulty volleyed a powerful effort against the top of the bar in the 18th minute after a good turn.
Ponticelli put the hosts ahead after Jack Grimmer beat his man in the 33rd minute and he then doubled City's advantage after Jodi Jones teed him up just before the break.
Lee Burge tipped over a looping Harry Pritchard free-kick on 57 minutes, before McNulty narrowly headed over four minutes later.
Adrian Clifton blew a great chance to pull a goal back when he skied over the bar from 10 yards after 67 minutes.
McNulty then had a goal ruled out for offside after he slotted home Max Biamou's pass on 85 minutes.
