I owe City a great deal - McGoldrick

8 November 2012

David McGoldrick praises the club for giving him the right platform...

Coventry City striker David McGoldrick believes he owes the club ‘a great deal’ ahead of the League One clash against Scunthorpe United.

The Forest loanee has enjoyed sensational form since moving to the club on a three-month loan deal, scoring 11 goals in 15 appearances for City.

He grabbed another brace against Crawley Town in midweek including a terrific long range effort to seal the three points in a 3-1 win.

Due to McGoldrick’s form at the club, questions are being asked about his future and he admitted he loves his time with City.

The 24-year old said: “Coventry under the manager Mark Robins are a team on the up. There are plenty of strikers at Forest so if I went back, it would be difficult for me to get back into the team.

“The past two years I have been injured a lot and I haven’t had a smile on my face for a while. But there is nothing better than playing every week and scoring goals. I owe the club a great deal for that.

“I don’t want to change anything at the moment and I have two months left of this loan period and whatever happens, I want to enjoy as much as possible.

“I really like the way Mark Robins operates. The football which we are playing and his training methods are great for me.

“The club doesn't have to sell itself to me. The club is great. As a player, you want to enjoy your football and I am doing that at the minute.”

Coventry are currently on a great run of results with three straight wins and they will be looking to extend that run against Scunthorpe on Saturday.

John Fleck and Jordan Clarke both provided each of McGoldrick’s goals against Crawley, and the striker has praised the team for the high standard of service he is receiving.

He added: “It was great to see John Fleck score against Crawley and then he set me up for my first goal as well. When I first joined the club, he was injured but now he is getting a great run of games.

“He has a great left foot and he has quite a few of my assists this season. Also, we have Carl Baker on the other side who works hard for the side.

“James Bailey and Jenno (Steven Jennings) look like they could establish a good partnership in midfield and the defence are looking really solid at the moment.

“Wins will always get confidence into the side and these are a really good set of players who have needed to realise it. We are all fighting for our places and hopefully we can continue up that table at the weekend.”
