'I probably can't match David's tally'

Coventry City defender William Edjenguele was delighted to get his first City goal, but doesn't think he will be able to catch up on David McGoldrick's goal tally.

The French defender, who moved to the club on a free transfer in the summer from Greek side Panetolikos, headed home a Carl Baker cross to put the Sky Blues into a 2-0 lead and score his first for the club.The goal was originally ruled out for offside by the linesman but the referee over-ruled his assistant and awarded the goal in the 37th minute. 

Edjenguele was relieved to get his first goal but believes making sure Coventry got the win was more important.

The 25-year old said: "Of course I am really happy to get my first goal but I am happier about the result and the way we won the game.

"I was waiting for my first goal and I saw (Franck) get his first for the club on Saturday so I said to myself before the game that I will get mine tonight.

"Also, I have another 90 minutes for the club which I am really delighted about. I have always believed in myself and when I have the opportunity to show what I can do, I give my all for the side.

"I am really enjoying my football at the moment and hopefully that can continue. I was disappointed to concede the one goal but I was really pleased with the way we fought for the points.

"There is a lot of spirit in the team at the moment and we have to use that against Portsmouth on Saturday."

David McGoldrick scored his 13th goal of the season in all competitions, a goal which sees him surpass Clarrie Bourton's 81-year record by scoring in six consecutive away games.

Edjenguele joked that he didn’t think he would be able to catch up to McGoldrick's goal tally, but he has lauded the effect he has had on the team.

Answering whether he thinks he can overtake the loanee's goal record, he joked: "Me? Maybe, who knows. Probably not.

"But seriously, right now David (McGoldrick) scores in almost every game and it is really good for us. 

"He is a really good man and a really good player who does a lot for the team, not just score goals.

"I am really happy for him because he deserves his goals and all the praise he is getting because of it.

"It was a really good night for us and hopefully we can keep this up and push on in the home matches coming up.”
