Clinton Morrison has vowed to break his league scoring duck for Coventry and is confident the goals will then begin to flow.

Chris Coleman's side have found the net just six times in their seven Championship matches to date, with Morrison still to score following his £2million summer switch from Crystal Palace.

The Republic of Ireland international scored in the Carling Cup clashes with Aldershot and Newcastle, but is still awaiting his first league strike.

But the former Birmingham forward believes that once he is up and running, it will be the start of a 'hot patch'.


He told the Coventry Telegraph: "My message to the fans is to keep the faith. I am always telling them there is no need to worry because goals will come for me - I am proven at this level and I will always score.

"Don't get me wrong, it is playing on the back of my mind, but when one goal goes in they will start flowing. I have just got to keep getting in the right positions and I know they will come.

"It is the same for Freddy Eastwood. I don't know whether he thinks about it like I do, but all I know is that I was born and bred on scoring goals.

"He doesn't tend to score his goals in the box so much, but we both need goals, as do all the strikers.

"Obviously once we start hitting that rich vein of form the club will start soaring up and up.

"But we are creating chances and getting points, and I personally don't need to worry because I know that if I keep getting in the right positions I will eventually score.

"I go on runs and hot patches and once I get one I will keep on going.

"I have got a couple of goals in the cup games but I would rather score all my goals in the league which is my bread and butter and hopefully things will pick up soon."
