Matty Godden outcome revealed after recent Coventry City controversy

Published

on

Matty Godden will miss Coventry City’s next two games after admitting a breach of FA rule E3.

Godden has made six appearances in the Championship for Coventry this season, with the Sky Blues getting off to an excellent start to the campaign.

Godden has scored two goals in those six games, scoring his second goal of the season in the 4-1 win over Fulham last time out.

The striker netted from the penalty spot to make it 2-1 on the day, with Viktor Gyokeres and Ian Maatsen also getting on the scoresheet.

What two colours are on the current away kit?

But Godden was embroiled in controversy in the build-up to the penalty being given, when he was adjudged to have dived following pressure from Antonee Robinson.

The FA announced a breach of rule E3 a few days on, and Godden has now accepted the charge and will miss Coventry’s next two games.

This means that Godden will be absent in the away trips to Blackburn and Preston, as Coventry look to pick up more points on the road.

The Verdict

This is undoubtedly a frustrating blow for Coventry as Godden has been impressive in recent games.

Of course, Gyokeres is their main man up top, but Godden has been good for them and his understanding with the big Sweden international is impressive.

He will keen to make amends and hope these next two games go quickly and help Coventry keep on fighting at the right end of the Championship table.
