Peterborough United striker Matty Godden has had a successful start to life at London Road after moving from League Two side Stevenage this summer. This weekend, The Posh travel to Scunthorpe United – where it all started for Posh’s top scorer Godden.
Peterborough United have now gone three League games without a win, but have the chance to stop the rot this weekend at Glanford Park against 12th place Scunthorpe United.
Striker Matty Godden has been previewing his return to Scunthorpe ahead of this weekend’s match, reflecting on his times tat Glanford Park in the early stages of his career. The 27-year-old played 21 games for The Iron, but didn’t score once. However, the striker still looks back on his time at Glanford Park with fond memories.
“I really enjoyed my time there, but had a couple of injuries that stopped me getting a run in the team,” Godden told the Peterborough Telegraph.
“The experience of Championship football when I first broke through was something I’ll never forget though and making my debut against Manchester United (a 5-2 defeat) was something else.
“I will be forever grateful for the opportunity they gave me. However I felt my time was up there and I needed to go and find football where I could play week in, week out. “I had a little taste of action at Scunthorpe, but getting to the age I was I needed to go and play. I had been at the same place for six/seven years.
“It will be strange to go back as I think everyone who was there with me has now moved on. I’m looking forward to the game though and hopefully we can come back with three points.”
Peterborough United will need to get three points this weekend to be sure that they keep their place in the automatic promotion spots, with the chasing pack of Sunderland, Barnsley and Walsall closing in on The Posh.
