Coventry City’s 1-1 draw today at Peterborough United brings Chris McCann’s loan spell. His cross led to a goal for Coventry in the first half, but a stoppage time equalizer ends his time at the club in disappointment.

McCann’s performance today was described by the Coventry Telegraph as, “Terrific last showing from the classy midfielder who will be sorely missed.”

The Atlanta United midfielder has battled minor injuries during his run with the Sky Blues. They currently sit in the drop zone, two points away from being relegated at the end of the season.

McCann played over 1,000 minutes in 14 games with Coventry City during his loan, scoring once. Sideways Sammy, a leading Coventry City blogger, hailed McCann for his “presence, authority and drive in an otherwise inexperienced team.”

Ahead of the game, McCann told the Coventry Telegraph’s Andy Turner:

“I’m confident they can pull away from trouble. They have a good manager in charge in Russell Slade and there’s no reason why. I will follow them from afar but I still have a job to do on Saturday when we can hopefully get a win.”

McCann was recruited by manager Tony Mowbray in the fall, but a slow start led Mowbray to resign in late September. After a long spell with technical director Tony Venus in charge on an interim basis, Russell Slade was appointed on December 21.
