INTERVIEW: Matty Godden Wycombe Preview

The striker previews tomorrow's clash...

19 March 2021

Matty Godden is looking forward to playing a key part in the final stages of the Sky Blues season.

Godden featured for the first time since the start of the New Year on Tuesday after a substitute cameo and told how there were promising signs with his recovery.

He said: “I’m good, two weeks back in training now and it is just about building myself back up again, it is kind of like a mini pre-season sort of thing where I have had so long out, you can take ten days and two weeks around Christmas time where I came back a little too soon.

“I was trying to get myself back fit and with the boys, November was the last time I was fully fit so things at the moment are going well.

“Any minutes on the pitch are going to help, I am not getting the games like you would do in a mini pre-season and we haven’t got that luxury to do that.”

He spoke about how he is preparing to ensure he gets as many minutes under his belt as possible and is hoping to be able to play for longer periods in matches.

He said: “The only way I am going to build my fitness up is training and doing extras in training and trying to help the boys on a Saturday or Tuesday when it comes to getting 15 or 20 minutes here and there, until I have got longer in me.

“It is such a hard one because as much as I came back a little bit too early, these are two completely different injuries and on the same foot.

“The only way I explain this one is I have got some Lego sticking out my foot, I managed to somehow tear straight through that lump.

“That is what I want to do at the end of the day, is help the boys and that’s what I want to be doing week in and week out, I don’t want to be coming on for 15 or 20 minutes here and there.

“That’s not the way I am, and I want to be playing every game, but I have got to understand that is not going to happen for a couple of weeks.”

He then commented on how the Sky Blues dressing room are in high hopes that they can avoid relegation and rise to the challenge of being involved in a relegation battle.

He said: “If someone said to us, we haven’t stepped in the bottom three all year up until this point we would have snatched your hand off but we know what we have got to do. We have got the sort of dressing room that will like this pressure, we had a similar pressure last year and we need results.

“I am sure with the characters and the boys we have got in the dressing room; we are more than capable of avoiding relegation.”
