MARC An­toine-For­tune ad­mits he was ex­pected to bring some Premier League class to Coven­try City – though that hasn’t turned into goals.

The 34-year-old striker spent more than three sea­sons in the top tier with West Brom but up un­til this week­end had scored just two goals for the Sky Blues since sign­ing in the sum­mer.

In­stead, teenage New­cas­tle United loa­nee Adam Arm­strong has been shoul­der­ing much of the goalscor­ing re­spon­si­bil­ity.

“I know I played in the Premier League so maybe they ex­pect a bit more but trust me I give all I can,” said An­toine-For­tune. “I will try my best ev­ery time I am on the pitch.

“It can be dif­fi­cult when you don’t play many games and, for me, the sea­son has been so-so – not the best and not the worst.

“Hope­fully the fans un­der­stand I am the type of player who loves foot­ball first and will al­ways do my best.”
