INTERVIEW: Josh Pask edging closer to return

Pask hoping to feature at Bristol Rovers on Sunday...

3 January 2020

Summer signing Josh Pask is hoping he can make his Sky Blues debut in the coming weeks, as he makes his return from injury.

Pask has featured on the bench for the last two games after missing the start of the season with an ankle injury and the defender is relieved to be back amongst the squad.

He said: “It has been frustrating because I have been injured for most of the season so far and I had started off well.

“Pre-season was going well but unfortunately a day before the Bolton game I jumped up and fell down awkwardly on my ankle and in the end, I required surgery.

“It is nice just to be training because I went a long time without kicking a ball so I am just glad to be back playing football.”

Pask has watched on from the side lines for the majority of the season but has been impressed with what he has seen so far.

After coming through the ranks at West Ham but not making a first team appearance, Pask is eager to make an impression on the pitch.

He said: “I needed to move on from West Ham to get that first team experience and to be involved with a first team dressing room and hopefully I can find that here in Coventry.

“The boys are doing really well at the moment, the team is playing excellent, and it is going to be quite hard to get into the team but it is good competition.

“I am being patient and waiting for my opportunity but whenever it comes and I will be there to take it.”

Matty Godden has also recently returned from injury and has returned with a bang after scoring back to back hat-tricks against Wycombe and Tranmere.

Although he isn’t promising six goals in two games, Pask is keen for the Sky Blues to push on and maintain their form into the second half of the season.

He said: “Two hat tricks in a row is something you don’t see very often and credit to Matty for doing so well after coming back from his injury.

“Being in the dressing room with everyone pushing in the same direction is great to be around.

“Confidence is high and we are all looking towards the end goal of being promoted.

“Everyone is confident and we need to be consistent because we are only half way through the season at the minute.”

The Sky Blues travel to Bristol Rovers on Sunday and Pask is prepared for any selection Mark Robins makes.

He said: “I will take whatever the manger feels is right to do, if he wants to start me, leave me on the bench or bring me off from the bench, whatever he wants to do I will accept it and be ready.

“We are all going into the game full of confidence, especially how we have played in the last two games and we will be looking to push on and progress in the cup.”
