Ex-Carlisle United frontman Harry McKirdy was on target again - this time against the Premier League champions.

In in-form forward scored Swindon Town's consolation goal in their televised FA Cup third round defeat to Manchester City.

The League Two outfit went down 4-1 but 24-year-old McKirdy made his mark on the tie in the 78th minute.

He ran onto a ball from Jonny Williams on the counter-attack before finishing clinically past Zack Steffen.

It was his fifth goal in two games, McKirdy having scored four against Northampton in the league the previous weekend.

That reduced Swindon's arrears to 3-1 after Bernardo Silva, Gabriel Jesus and Ilkay Gundogan had put the visitors in command.

Cole Palmer added a late fourth for City at the County Ground.

McKirdy, United's top socrer in the 2019/20 season, has 11 goals to his name so far this season.
