This season could see Gary McSheffery join the ranks of Coventry legends such as Ernie Hunt, Dion Dublin, Cyrille Regis and Clarrie Bourton, by scoring 50 career goals for the Sky Blues.

Having re-joinied the Sky Blues this summer, McSheffery has been even present in the promotion push into the play-offs, and with five goals already scored this season, another six will see him reach 50 goals for the club.

Whilst mainly playing on the left wing this season, he has been deadly at making late runs into the box to knock in second balls and finish scrappy chances.

Gary made his league debut for Coventry at the age of 16, whilst the Sky Blues were still playing Premiership football; this was a league record for the youngest player to play in the league and was only broken by Aaron Lennon in 2003.

McSheffery is still only 28 years of age and many Sky Blues’ fans will hope he can smash past 50 and get closer to Clarrie Bourton’s record of 182 goals for the club.

Only another 140 to go Gary....!!!!
