Coventry City midfielder Wesley Jobello has made a goalscoring return to action as he played the full 90 minutes of the club’s U23s team’s match vs Ipswich.
The 26-year-old has been out of action for over a year after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament.
Jobello joined the Sky Blues last summer and has made a total of 10 appearances for the club, scoring in last season’s 3-2 win over Blackpool, but has spent the majority of his Coventry career undergoing rehabilitation after the injury.
And the player is getting closer to a return to action, building his fitness by turning out for the U23 side, and even getting on the scoresheet in his latest appearance.
That was only good news for the team’s head coach Luke Tisdale.
“Wes got his goal and almost 90 minutes in the tank, so I’m sure he was happy and to get on the scoresheet, being in the right place at the right time,” he told the club’s official website.
“It was a nice counter-attack from the front three. Marcel hit the post and then Wes was there on the rebound to tap it in.”
The game eventually ended in a 1-1 draw, a result which Tisdale was happy with.
“It was good to get a point away from home, in what is a real long journey, which was always the difficult aspect of the day we wanted to get through,” he added.

“To get a point was a good result, but I think the three points were there to be taken, but we just couldn’t get the luck that they did maybe.
“We were disappointed to concede and I’ve watched the goal back and the lads crosses the ball and it goes into the top corner, he doesn’t mean it, but fair play to Ipswich because they had a disjointed team.
“As I said, credit to them because they stuck in the game and they got a bit of luck and really we needed that second goal to kill the game off, but it was a good away performance on reflection and beside a little bit of bad luck, it would’ve been a perfect away performance.”
