'It's a privilege to break club record'

David McGoldrick is delighted to be in the club's history books...

Coventry City striker David McGoldrick believes it is a 'privilege' to be in the club's history books after scoring in six consecutive away games.

He completed this feat at Colchester United in the 3-1 win at the Weston Homes Community Stadium, beating Clarrie Bourton's 81-year record. 

Whilst being presented with his Coventry Building Society Goal of the Month award for October, the loanee striker hailed the record as a 'great achievement'. 

McGoldrick said: "It is a great achievement because he (Clarrie Bourton) is the all-time leading record scorer here so to beat him at any record is quite something.

"He is a big name at the club so for me to beat his away record is a privilege. I am really thankful for all the support I have been getting off the fans.

"Also, I should thank the team because I couldn't have done it without them and they have been brilliant in getting me in those positions.

"They have been setting me up and some of the goals have been easier for me to score so I am really happy with that.

"I just want to keep it going, score as many goals as we can and see what happens."

The 24-year old thought he had scored his 14th goal of the season against Portsmouth when he tapped home after Carl Baker's shot came back off the crossbar in the second half.

However, the linesman ruled the effort out for offside and McGoldrick explained that he was disappointed with the decision.

He added: "Honestly, when the referee blew his whistle, I didn't know what he blew for. 

"Sometimes you score and you think 'Am I offside?' and have a look across at the linesman, but I didn't look at the linesman because I knew I wasn't offside.

"I had timed my run perfectly, but you know, that's football and you have to except that part of the game. These things happen and you have to learn to move on.

"The boys have got a tough FA Cup fixture on Saturday and it would be nice if they could go through. Then we have got the Johnstone Paint Trophy on Tuesday which is a huge game as well so we have to focus as we have some massive home games coming up."
