Striker Cody McDonald targets more success at Gillingham second time around
Cody McDonald made an immediate impact on his Gillingham return
and hopes he can rekindle former glories.
McDonald, pictured, hit 25 goals for the Gills during
his last loan spell, in the 2010-11 season, and is back again on a
three-month loan deal from League 1 Coventry.
It’s a chance for McDonald to help fire the Gills to promotion
and make a name for himself once more.
McDonald, 26, speaking before his goal earnt Gills a 1-1 draw at
home to York on Saturday, said: "Since the new manager came in (at
Coventry), he brought in new formations which perhaps didn’t suit
my game and it hasn’t quite worked out this season.
"That doesn’t mean to say it won’t in the future. It’s an
opportunity for me to try and guarantee a starting place and I’m
looking forward to it.
"It’s important for me to get off to a good start here and
hopefully if I do that, I can do something similar to what I did
"I’m here now, it’s a fresh start, I’m looking forward to the
challenge. I’m buzzing, it’s a great opportunity for me to come
back to Gillingham where I kick-started my career.
"Hopefully I can play a part in the Gills getting promoted."
