The experienced targetman joined forces with the former Watford boss after completing his move from Colchester United earlier this week.

Both helped the Us push for a top-six finish in League One last season, but the club faded away towards the end of the campaign, ultimately finishing eight points adrift of the play-offs.

However, the 32-year-old admits he is looking forward to testing himself at Championship level again.

"It is a great opportunity for me personally and linking up with Aidy Boothroyd again is something I am looking forward to," he told

"We had a good season at Colchester together, but we just fell away at the end.


"The manager is renowned for working at this level and has proven to be a success at this level before, when he took Watford up into the Premier League, so when I found out that he was interested in taking me here I jumped at the chance.

"He is a manager that I have got on with since day one and it always helps when you know what a manager is all about and what he demands of his players.

"Every game you play in helps build your experience and every team needs a mixture of youth, experience and everything in between.

"Hopefully, I can add to that blend and I have good memories from the last time I played in the Championship.

"Whilst at Colchester I formed a decent partnership with Kevin Lisbie in that division and hopefully I can do the same with some of the Coventry lads and help them do well in the league this year."
