McGoldrick to miss penultimate game of loan spell and Robins speaks on hopes for Bailey

In-form striker David McGoldrick will miss the penultimate game of his loan spell with the Sky Blues after picking up a fifth yellow card in Saturday's 3-1 away win over Stevenage at the Lamex.

McGoldrick netted City's third with a superb 25-yard lob over Boro 'keeper Steve Arnold to wrap up the points but went into the referee's book after taking off his shirt in celebration.

The 25-year-old will now miss Saturday's away clash with MK Dons at stadium:mk ahead of the final game of his loan spell at home to Shrewsbury Town on New Year's Day.

"Getting a fifth booking for taking his shirt off was a pain in the neck but he'll be disappointed with that as well," said City boss Mark Robins.

Robins also spoke about his desire to try and do a deal which would see midfielder James Bailey return to the club.

The 24-year-old's 93-day emergency loan spell ended with City's 3-1 win over Stevenage so he has returned to parent club Derby County.

Robins said though that he would like to try and do a deal which would see him return to the Sky Blues.

"I'd like to sign James permanently but if not that then on loan again. But we will see what can be done and what we can do in January."
