‘Absolutely gutted for you’ – Plenty of Coventry fans react to latest player injury update

Injured Coventry City striker Matty Godden has tweeted that he will be out of action for several months in a significant blow to the Sky Blues promotion hopes.

Godden was hopeful of playing against his former club Peterborough United on Saturday but was forced to sit out the 2-2 draw at London Road. It now appears that the groin injury causing him problems is, in fact, a pelvic bone issue which was aggravated in training and might require surgery.

The twenty-eight-year-old striker, who joined the club for £750,000 from Peterborough United in the summer, has four goals to his name so far but after Coventry boss Mark Robins confirmed the injury was more severe than first imagined after the match, Godden followed this up himself with a tweet which expressed his disappointment at the news on social media.


The former Stevenage frontman has already become a popular figure at Coventry City, and while it is a major blow for Robins to lose a proven goalscorer at League One level, his disappointment was no doubt tempered by the comeback of Max Biamou who made a triumphant return to the starting line-up for City at Posh, scoring a sensational goal that looked like being the winner five minutes from time, only for Mo Eisa to level things up in the dying seconds.

Godden’s tweet provoked a warm reaction from many Sky Blues fans, with plenty of supporters wishing him a speedy recovery in the hope of seeing him back in the side for the run-in, which after Saturday’s result, looks like being an exciting one for all Sky Blues followers.
