Match Preview

Manchester City's quest for FA Cup glory begins with a trip to League Two outfit Swindon Town in the third round on Friday evening. While the Premier League champions will enter the tournament in the third round, Swindon have already seen off Crewe Alexandra and Walsall to make it this far.

Swindon had failed to reach the third round of the FA Cup for 10 successive seasons before making it this far this time around, with a comfortable 3-0 win over Crewe Alexandra in round one preceding a 2-1 triumph at Walsall back in December.

Not since the 1991-92 season have the League Two side managed to make it as far as the fifth round, but any hopes of them keeping their cup run going as far as round four will be slim to none when they take to the field on Friday.

Form was not on their side at the end of 2021, as Ben Garner's side went winless in four League Two games before the New Year, but they kicked off 2022 in barnstorming fashion by seeing off Northampton Town 5-2 at County Ground.

Star striker Harry McKirdy was unplayable on the day as he scored four of his side's five goals - with fellow number nine Tyreece Simpson also getting in on the act - but Swindon have lost each of their last three FA Cup games at home and are facing an uphill battle to avoid making it four here.
