'I want to improve my City record'

27 February 2013

Cody McDonald hopes he gets a chance at City following his loan spell at Gillingham

Coventry City striker Cody McDonald wants to improve his goal-scoring record with the Sky Blues following his loan spell at Gillingham.

The 25-year old was recalled to the club on Monday from his loan at Priestfield and came on as a late substitute during the 2-0 win at Bournemouth.

McDonald netted four goals in eight appearances for the Gills and he hopes he can bring that into League One with Coventry City.

The City striker said: "I am aware that my record at the club isn't what I would like it to be but I think the loan spell has got me in good form.

"I hope I am given a chance in the side to show what I have been doing at Gillingham and help the side achieve this season.

"I am happy to be back and it was great to be back on the pitch for City, even though I only kicked it once and got booked for it.

"I have helped in Gillingham's promotion push so I am hoping now I am back here, I can help the club in getting promotion."

Gillingham are currently top of the League One table with McDonald's four goals often proving to be match-winners for Martin Allen's side.

McDonald has thanked the Kent side for their support but now hopes to show City fans the same form he showed at Priestfield.

He added: "The club and Martin Allen were brilliant to me to be fair. They backed me the whole way and I spoke with him yesterday and he wants me to keep going here at Coventry.

"I haven't scored as many goals as I would like for Coventry this season but the loan spell got me games and confidence which I needed.

"I just need to get a run of games together, and I will see what happens. I am happy to be working for Lee Carsley at the minute but whatever happens with the manager's situation, I know I have to work to get an opportunity.

"I have to try and build on the confidence I have got from my loan spell and hopefully I will get a chance to prove that."
