But the 26-year-old Wales striker believes his heroics against the Posh could provide his Sky Blues career with the lift it needed.
"Hopefully this will kickstart my Coventry career in front of goal," he 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.
"After last season, when I only scored three goals, it couldn't have got much worse for me and it wasn't good enough. So this season I had to kick on.
"I don't think I started a game for the first 10 games but I have played the last three and got the rewards I have wanted. This is definitely the best spell of form I have had at Coventry."
