Marcus Barnes made the perfect start to his loan spell at Yeovil Town as he scored the opening goal in their 2-0 victory over League One Bradford City in the Emirates FA Cup third round.

Barnes, who joined the Glovers a day before the tie, was handed a debut up front alongside Francois Zoko and repaid that faith on 61 minutes.

After being played in by Otis Khan, the 21-year-old raced through one-on-one with Lukas Raeder in the Bradford goal before showing composure to slot the ball under him.

There was also progression into the fourth round for Sam Gallagher, who scored his fourth goal in five starts during Birmingham City’s 1-0 success against fellow Championship side Burton Albion.

A scrappy contest was settled on 57 minutes when Jacques Maghoma’s surging run down the right saw him beat Jake Buxton and find Gallagher, who side-footed home inside the box.

In Scotland, it was day to forget for Harry Lewis as Dundee United were beaten 6-1 by Falkirk in the Scottish Championship.
