Coventry City’s Matty Godden has revealed he is desperate to guide the club back to the Championship after their fine season so far.

Mark Robins’ men have been brilliant in League One this season and they are in a commanding position for promotion, holding a seven-point lead over third place and they also have a game in hand on the majority of their rivals below them in the table.

Nevertheless, there is still work for The Sky Blues to do to get over the line but there is a belief among the support that they can finally return to the second-tier. And, speaking to TalkSPORT via the Coventry Telegraph, Godden explained what it would mean to him personally and the club if they did achieve promotion.

Leaving Scunthorpe at the time I had a little taste of it but I always said my main aim as I was dropping down the leagues was to try to build my way back up to that level. And we have got that opportunity now. We’re in an unbelievable position when we do come to restart the season, and it’s massive for me.

Everyone at the club deserves it after what’s been put on our plate this year so yeah, it’s massive for everyone at the football club.”

Will Coventry City win promotion this season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

If Coventry do go up, Godden’s form will have been crucial to their success. The striker, who joined from Peterborough in the summer, has scored 14 goals in 26 league games this season and was flying before the enforced break, netting in four consecutive games.

So, he is sure to have a pivotal role to play for the Sky Blues in the coming months, even if we don’t know when that will be. There was some promising news on that front today, with EFL chief Rick Parry revealing that talks are underway to broadcast Football League games in the future, with games realistically likely to start behind closed doors as clubs look to finish the campaign.
