Wolves' loss is City's gain

Wolves' loss is City's gain

Freddy Eastwood returns to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday as a Coventry City player, months after leaving the Molineux club, disappointed at not living up to the form that persuaded them to sign him from Southend.

The Wales international has already become a big favourite of Sky Blues' fans and will be looking to get one back over his old team-mates at the weekend.

One of those old team-mates, defender Kevin Foley, told the Express and Star: 'The gaffer has got us all working really hard and that's the key for him. He wants hard-working players before talent and, if the talent comes through, then great.

'Freddy's a special player who would be great in most teams but I don't think he fitted into the way the gaffer wanted to play.

'I'm sure our loss will be someone else's gain and we wish him all the best for the future - after Saturday!

'I don't think there was ever any rift, it was just that the gaffer had his ideas on how he wanted his players and strikers to play.'
