‘Strange decision’, ‘Sad to see him go’ – Many Coventry City fans react as player departs

Coventry City have been dealt a blow following Wolverhampton Wanderers’ decision to recall Ryan Giles from his loan spell.

The Premier League side have triggered an option in the deal to bring Giles back to Molineux, but it appears that he’s heading straight back out on loan, with Rotherham United the favourites according to Sky Sports reporter Anthony Joseph.

Giles was a regular at left wing-back for Cov this season, starting 14 of their first 15 games until the start of December, where he was dropped in place of Sam McCallum – a change which has seemingly worked with the club losing just one of their next five games.

Understandably Wolves will want the 20-year-old to start as much as possible, and with Paul Warne at Rotherham adopting a wing-back system in recent times without a natural left-sided player, Giles would be a seemingly perfect fit.

It looks like there will be a ready-made replacement coming in for Mark Robins though as the club are set to win the race to sign Ross County teenager Josh Reid, who has made 20 appearances for the Scottish Premiership club this season.

Godden? Hamer? – Can you name which Coventry City player scored each these 15 goals this season?

And despite initial reports suggesting that he would head back to the Staggies for the rest of the season, Giles’ recall means that Reid will go straight into the first-team squad.

Coventry fans have been reacting to the news on Twitter and there’s a general sense of disappointment at his return to Wolves – check out the best of those responses below.
