Last updated : 25 August 2012 By Covsupport News Service/JM

Coventry Sphinx were firmly dumped out of the FA Cup with a 6-0 defeat at Gornal Athletic.

Ravi Sangha opened the scoring in the 15th minute and a second goal came six minutes later, when Chris Rabone converted a penalty.

Sangha made it 3-0 after 29 minutes and went on to complete his hat-trick on the hour mark after Martin Nesbitt had fired home a fourth in the 57th minute.

In stoppage time, Nesbitt struck again to compound a miserable day for Sphinx and their heaviest defeat in the FA Cup since they entered the competition.
