Crewe Alexandra are just a game away from booking a trip to Wembley after winning the first leg of their Johnstone's Paint Northern Area final.
The Cheshire side eased past home side Coventry City at a packed Ricoh Arena thanks to two goals from Bradden Inman, and a late strike by AJ Leitch-Smith.
Crewe had to deal with sustained Coventry pressure throughout the match in front of a 31,000 crowd but now look firm favourites to reach the final in the Capital on April 7.
