CONNECTIONS: We look at three strikers who have played for both City and Walsall

1 January 2015

One current Walsall striker will be looking to get the edge over the Sky Blues as we look at players who have played for both sides...

Coventry City will be looking to start 2015 with a win against Walsall, but one current Saddlers striker will be looking to stop his former club.

We look at three forwards who have played for both Walsall and the Sky Blues, starting with one who featured for City last season...


Matheiu Manset



Born in France, Manset is currently at Walsall after a spell with the Sky Blues last season. 
The 25-year old came off the bench nine times for City and scored one goal against Preston, before joining Royal Antwerp. His spell in Belgium was brief and he returned to the Midlands with the Saddlers, and has netted once in 22 appearances, 16 of those from the bench.

Julian Joachim



Having establish his career with Leicester City and Aston Villa, Joachim joined the Sky Blues in 2001 and was with the club for three years. He scored 14 times for City in 61 games, before joining Leeds. During his time in Yorkshire he was loaned to Walsall where he proved a massive hit, netting six times in eight starts before finishing his career with Boston United and Darlington.

Clive Platt



Born in Wolverhampton, Platt began his career with Walsall between 1995 and 1999. After spells at a number of clubs, he moved to City in 2010, where he scored the 100th goal of his professional career as a 34-year old, against Southampton. Platt scored seven times in all for the Sky Blues and has made two appearances for Bury this season in League Two.
