Ryan Giles finally made his Coventry City debut on Tuesday, coming off the bench in their 1-1 draw with Rotherham United. As per WhoScored, the 20-year-old replaced Sam McCallum in the 89th minute, had seven touches, made four passes with 25% accuracy, whipped in one cross and made one clearance.
Giles has had to be patient for opportunities after being left out of the starting lineup due to concerns over his fitness. The midfielder joined Coventry on a season-long loan at the end of January and found himself out of favour under Mark Robins.
He missed City’s 2-1 win over Bristol Rovers (February 1) as he’d only joined the club a day previously and had been an unused substitute in their 2-1 win over Bolton Wanderers (February 8), 1-0 win over Portsmouth (February 11), 2-0 win over Southend United (February 15) and 2-1 win over Rochdale (February 22) before finally appearing against Rotherham.
Coventry next face Sunderland on Sunday and Giles will hope to make another appearance, if only brief. Robins must be happier with his application and fitness to introduce him from the bench, so time will tell if the 20-year-old can get more regular playing time.
