City's £1.5m, 20 goals-a-season striker?

City's £1.5m, 20 goals-a-season striker?

As another disappointing year drifts to a close at the Ricoh Arena it was nice not only to have a win to celebrate at the weekend but to see also the return to goalscoring form of a player who has remained popular with the fans despite his struggles in front of goal.

Freddy Eastwood's hat-trick against Peterborough is, everyone is hoping, only the start of a return to the form that saw him net 49 goals in 111 league appearances for Southend, earning moves to Wolves and then the Sky Blues.

Eastwood's determination and effort have endeared him to City supporters despite a record of only 5 strikes in over 60 games before the weekend.

His third goal in particular came at a time when Peterborough's fightback had darkened the mood around the Ricoh Arena and could, in time be seen as a turning point in the club's fortunes under Chris Coleman.

'Hopefully this will kickstart my Coventry career in front of goal,' the player himself told the Coventry Telegraph.

'I came here to score goals and I have got three in one game now and I will obviously be confident in every game I play now.

well done Freddy who has always given his all for the team. Let us hope for more. His 3rd goal on Saturday could turn out to be 'the goal of the season' in more ways than one?
