Colllins started his career at Swindon Town but Fulham scouts were impressed by him and he signed for the club in the summer of 2001 for a fee in excess of £200,000. During a pre season tour to Germany in the 2005–06 season, Collins sustained a hamstring injury, this was a start of a nightmare season as he had recurring hamstring tears which kept him out for an 18-month period. He did not break into the first team at Fulham and signed for Swansea City on a free transfer in May 2007 on a two year deal.

On 11 August 2010, Collins left Swansea City by mutual consent in a search for regular football. After leaving the Swans, Matty signed for Haverfordwest County where he spent six months before signing for Neath FC.
