The experienced striker made his 500th career league appearance against Burnley last weekend and is also just two goals short of his century.

He is relishing his time at Coventry after joining from Colchester United in the summer and the 33-year-old believes his career is benefiting from playing in the Championship.

"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.

Better players

"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."
