INTERVIEW: Matty Godden Preston Preview

The striker looked ahead to Saturday's game..

23 April 2021

Matty Godden is looking forward to the Sky Blues weekend clash with Preston on Saturday afternoon at St Andrew’s.

Godden told how the squad is full of confidence after winning three games on the bounce heading into the game against the Lilywhites.

He said: “Every game in the division is very tough and you need to be tactically on it every game and let your quality come through at the end.

“We know how good we are at home so they will have a mind on that as well and we have to be bang on it to get a result.

“To win four out of five matches and teams instead of looking forward to playing us they are thinking hold on these have turned a corner, they are worried about what we can do and how they can hurt us and that is what we want.”

He was also pleased to have made a significant contribution in City’s recent run and has netted twice in five matches.

He said: “It has been nice to come back and be amongst the lads and helping in a way of showing what I am capable of. You look at it now and if we can build on the momentum and take it into next year.

“You look at teams like Barnsley who went on a little run last year and are now fighting at the top end of the table.”

It has been a frustrating season for Godden, who has missed chunks of games with injury throughout the course of the campaign.

However, the striker isn’t the only one to have spent time in the treatment room this season and in the absences of himself and others, Godden praised the lads who have performed week in week out.

He said: “The injuries we have had, we have been unlucky with and the points total we have picked up is testament to those other lads who have stepped up and we are not just eleven men but a squad of 22 or 23 players that can step up and do a job when needed.”
