We take a look at all the essentials from our elimination from the Emirates FA Cup following a 3-1 defeat against Charlton Athletic.

United exited the Emirates FA Cup following defeat against the 1947-48 winners of the competition; Charlton Athletic.

The hosts were forced to withdraw Ricky Holmes in the first half, with his replacement - Ademola Lookman - opening the scoring with a brilliant left-footed strike.

Skipper Johnnie Jackson drilled in their second before the interval following a half-cleared cross from the left.

Tom Hopper, off the bench to replace Paddy Madden, halved the deficit with a header from a corner, just moments after Declan Rudd had thwarted the striker with a fine save.

From there the Iron rallied, with Kevin van Veen and Josh Morris having the pick of the efforts before Lookman caught the visitors on the break and sealed progression for the Addicks.
