Coventry City take on Swindon Town on Monday night and ahead of the game we look at three players who have played for both clubs.

Looking back through the history books, we have found a player who scored one of the most famous goals in English football history, a loanee to both clubs and a current Championship striker.

Ernie Hunt



Born in Swindon, Hunt is considered a Town legend and he started his career with the club between 1959-1965. He was also a fans’ favourite during his time with the Sky Blues between 1968-73 and scored one of the most iconic goals in English football history, as he smashed in a volley from Willie Carr’s audacious heel-flick, famously dubbed the 'Donkey goal.'

Johnnie Jackson



The current captain of Championship side Charlton Athletic, 33-year old Jackson had loan spells with both Swindon and the Sky Blues. His first spell away from Tottenham - where he started his career - was at the County Ground in 2002. He joined City on loan in 2003 and impressed during his short stay, where he scored the winner in a 1-0 win over West Bromwich Albion in December 2003.

Lukas Jutkiewicz



Currently playing in the Championship with Burnley, Jukiewicz made his debut for Swindon at the age of 17 and helped the club into League One during his stint there. He moved to Everton from the Robins and after a series of loan spells, signed permanently for the Sky Blues in 2010. He made 69 appearances and scored 18 goals before joining Middlesbrough and Bolton on loan prior to moving to his the Clarets. He is yet to score for Burnley since joining in 2014.
