The National League South outfit, the lowest-ranked team left in the competition, stunned Ipswich Town by beating them 2-1 at Portman Road last month.
Now they will be looking to dump out another former cup winner in the Sky Blues.
Kasey Palmer broke the deadlock for Coventry but Bailey Cadamarteri levelled after ten minutes.
But it was just one-way traffic for the hosts after that a double from Callum O’Hare and a Haji Wright strike sealed the victory.
Meanwhile, fellow Championship team Southampton booked themselves a trip to Anfield later this month.
They coasted to a 3-0 home win over Watford in their replay.
Sekou Mara helped himself to two goals for the Saints while Che Adams also got his name on the scoresheet.
Plymouth Argyle and Leeds United needed extra-time to separate them in this evening’s other replay.
Wilfried Gnoto thought he had won it for the visitors only for the Pilgrims to level late on through Brendan Galloway.
That resulted in the additional 30 minutes, but Crysencio Summerville put Leeds back in front midway through the first period.
And Georginio Rutter’s scuffed finish and then a cruel Ryan Hardie own goal sealed the 4-1 win in the second half of the extra-time.
They will now travel to the winners of tomorrow’s replay between Aston Villa and Chelsea in the FA Cup fifth round.
