Chris' diving header after 38 minutes levelled matters on the night after Steve Howey headed City into the lead nine minutes earlier. Chris previously netted against the Dane for Wimbledon in January 1997.
"I was just happy to be playing really - to get a goal is a massive bonus for me," said a delighted Chris. "I don't expect to get them but I couldn't miss, I was only about two yards out, wasn't I?
"The manager thought he would put me up for corners as a bit of a surprise thing. No-one seemed to know I was there and luckily it fell on my head.
"It's the second goal I've scored against Schmeichel in my career anyway."
Chris was given his chance at Maine Road ahead of Goran Bunjevcevic and hopes he has impressed enough to remain in the side against Charlton on Boxing Day.
"I'm just looking to play as many games as I can really. When the chances come along I just do my best and get in there and show what I can do. It's then up to the manager if he leaves me in there."
Chris Perry was quick to point out that his goal against Manchester City on Monday was not the first he has scored against the imposing figure of Peter Schmeichel.
