INTERVIEW: “We’ve Done What We Set Out To Do"

Sky Blues boss Mark Robins happy with summer business...

9 August 2019

The Sky Blues confirmed their latest summer signing, Matt Godden earlier this week and Mark Robins was pleased to welcome the striker to the club.

Godden joined on a three-year-deal from fellow League One side Peterborough United, where he scored 18 goals last season.

Robins admitted it was a position he was looking to strengthen and is happy to have been able to get his man.

“It’s a position we’ve been looking to strengthen for a while.

“When we heard Matt was available, we tried to bring him in and thankfully we have and on the back of Tom Bayliss going it gave us a bit of money to do that.

“He was a good target, he’s hungry, he works his socks off, he has ability and he strikes the ball cleanly.

“He’s worked his way up the tough way and he’s still hungry and he’s desperate to do well and all those things considered he’s a good lad and a welcome addition.”

The Transfer Window closed for clubs in the Premier League and Championship yesterday evening but remains open until September 2nd for clubs in League One and Two.

Robins doesn’t expecting anything ‘major’ to happen at Coventry City, but told how there could be room for one or two moves towards now and the close of the window.

“We’ve done what we set out to do really and I’d still like to do something absolutely but in terms of cost we have to be realistic with what we’ve got.

“If things progress and I can move things on in terms of cup competitions and we end up getting more support, that will give me a bit more, but other than that I think we’re maxed out.

“We might be able to do a little bit, but there won’t be anything major happening, but there will be one or two that might move out which may free up places.

“I think we had a good start last week, we’ve had a good summer and they’re all our players, I’ve got none in on loan at the moment which bodes well.”
