Platt enjoying life at the Ricoh

Coventry striker Clive Platt believes he is playing some of the best football of his career to date. The 33-year-old former Walsall, MK Dons and Colchester target man chalked up his 500th league appearance in Saturday`s 1-0 win over Burnley and is also closing in on his 100th league goal. "I think I've got 98 in the league so it will be nice to reach that, although I didn't know about the appearances so I have had to get my shirt from Saturday and get it signed by the lads," Platt told the Coventry Telegraph. "I'm really enjoying my football. I worked with the gaffer on what my attributes are and what I can bring to the team last year and it has fitted in with what he is doing here. "No disrespect to the other lads I have played with before, but we have got a lot better players here and when a ball goes into the box it is slightly better and gives you the advantage. "We have got Westy's kicks which give me the advantage with their direction, and as well as me believing I am playing my best football, I am playing with some of the best players in the division around me which is obviously helping as well."
