Striker Cody McDonald is hoping he gets the chance to stay at Gillingham and finish the job

Cody McDonald is hoping to finish the season off with Gillingham – no matter how well he does.

The striker, 26, hit his third goal in four appearances on Saturday to hand the Gills maximum points at Bradford.

That form could prompt parent club Coventry to activate a recall in McDonald’s loan deal at the end of February. But McDonald, who is enjoying his football once again, is happy where he is.

He said: “They might want me back and if they do, they do, but I am enjoying my football at the minute.

“Hopefully, I can stay until the end of the season, at least, and play a big part in a promotion.”

And his brief return to the Gills has, so far, been in stark contrast to life with the League 1 Sky Blues.

He said: “It was not nice sitting on the bench every week and turning up to games thinking ‘am I going to be involved today?’

“It’s important to be playing every week. You are not always going to have it your own way but when you are not, you have to try and work hard and cement your place in the team.

“Things are coming together nicely for me now, but most importantly, though, it’s about the team and if we can perform like we did on Saturday until the end of the season, we will take a lot of stopping.”
