Martial Godo, who is currently on loan at Wigan Athletic from Fulham, delivered yet another outstanding performance against Peterborough United recently. Godo managed to score his third goal of the season, contributing to Wigan’s second consecutive victory.

The Fulham fanbase is buzzing with excitement, especially about their young talents. Fans are eagerly anticipating Luc de Fougerolles’ home debut after his impressive performance in the Carabao Cup against Ipswich Town. Luke Harris has also made notable appearances, and supporters are closely monitoring Jay Stansfield’s progress at Birmingham City, where he is now mentored by Wayne Rooney.

One promising young player who hasn’t had many chances with Fulham’s first team is Martial Godo. He was signed from Margate in 2022 and made his debut in the infamous cup defeat to Crawley Town last season. This season, Fulham decided to loan Godo to Wigan in League One, and he showcased his skills against Peterborough United.

Godo wasted no time in making an impact, finding the net just seven minutes into the game by outmaneuvering the opposition goalkeeper and slotting the ball into the empty goal. His performance against Peterborough marked his sixth goal involvement in ten league games this season, comprising three goals and three assists.

In addition to his goal-scoring abilities, Godo demonstrated his passing accuracy, completing 86% of his passes, although he connected with only 12 out of 14 attempts. He also contributed defensively by winning three duels, making two interceptions, and executing one tackle during the match.

Despite his impressive performance, Godo was substituted in the 74th minute with the score tied. Fortunately, Callum McManaman scored the winning goal with eight minutes left in the game.

Not only did Godo shine, but his under-21s squad colleagues also had a successful evening, defeating Gillingham 1-0 in the EFL Trophy. This victory marked Fulham’s first advancement to the knockout stages of the competition, thanks to Aaron Loupalo-Bi’s skillful finish.
