*The Sunday Life*
Sunday, 29 January 1995

TONY Coton made a spectacular return as City clawed their way into the fifth round of the FA Cup. Coton distinguished himself in the first half with a full length fingertip save from the magical left foot of Steve Staunton. But it was in the closing stages when Villa threw everything into a replay bid that he really underlined his class. Disappointed Villa manager Brian Little was another Coton admirer saying: "He has that certain presence which gives their side a lift and they defended well". Paul Walsh was another City hero giving them an early boost with a superb seventh minute goal after a great through ball by lan Brightwell.
