Brought in as a late signing in the January transfer window after other targets fell through, Charlie Wakefield has gone on to be a serial late substitute thus far in his time at Coventry City. Limited to less than 45 minutes of action in his eight appearances for the club, it is difficult to assess what kind of player that he is and how he may develop over the coming season.
Reportedly one of the fastest players assistant manager Adi Viveash has worked with, Wakefield has yet to demonstrate the full extent of his pace. A gangly figure, Wakfield has largely been used to maintain shape on the right wing and has had very little opportunity to show what he can do on the ball – a somewhat fortunate assist away at Sunderland aside. Pre-season is going to be a key period for Wakefield to assert his credentials as part of the first-team squad, if not, Mark Robins will be adding further competition in wide areas.
