The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE - By Char­lie Tal­bot-Smith

COVEN­TRY striker Marc McNulty is con­fi­dent the flood­gates are about to open for him.

The Scot­tish striker joined in the sum­mer from Sh­effield United but only notched two goals in his first 12 league games.

How­ever, with the likes of Duck­ens Na­zon and Jor­dan Pon­ti­celli chip­ping in with goals, McNulty, 25, is sure his time is com­ing.

He said: “You want to score ev­ery week as a striker but some­times that’s not pos­si­ble and you need to keep the con­fi­dence in your­self.

“We need to try hard and work hard in train­ing. I haven’t got as many goals as I would have liked but I’m con­fi­dent in my­self that one stage in the sea­son, I will start fir­ing.

“There’s been a lot of dif­fer­ent part­ner­ships up front this sea­son be­cause no one has really banged in goals, so it’s very frus­trat­ing, but I’m sure the goals will start com­ing.”

In-form Mans­field striker Danny Rose has been heav­ily linked with the Sky Blues but this week both Mans­field boss Steve Evans and his Coven­try coun­ter­part Mark Robins moved to quash such ru­mours.

“Mans­field have some good play­ers,” said Robins. “Danny Rose is one but it is amaz­ing where these ru­mours come from.

“I think it just comes from some talk down the pub af­ter a few peo­ple have had too many.”

HUN­GRY: Marc McNulty
