I should have scored - McSheffrey

29 October 2012

Gary McSheffrey wants to keep his place in the side after Orient win...

Coventry City midfielder Gary McSheffrey hopes he can 'kick-start' his season after his lively performance in the 1-0 win over Leyton Orient.

The midfielder started just behind lone front man David McGoldrick and McSheffrey played his part in the match-winning goal.

McSheffrey picked out Carl Baker before his shot was spilled into the path of McGoldrick in the 7th minute. 

McSheffrey was pleased to be featuring for the first team once again and delighted to claim all three points.

The 30-year old said: "I am really happy with the win and we have showed a bit of steel at the end to get the three points.

"We should have had the game won by half-time really as I have had a couple of opportunities which I should have scored from.

"I was quite pleased with my own personal performance and it is great to be fit again and get onto the pitch.

"It has been very frustrating when I haven't been playing and the season has been very stop-start for me. I have watched a lot of games this season which isn't what I want to do.

"I just want to get five or six games now to get fully match fit and really get myself into this season. I want to be in form and firing for the side as much as I can."

The Sky Blues now take a break from the league with their FA Cup First Round clash against Arlesey Town next week at the Ricoh Arena.

The 'Cov Kid' hopes the side can really begin to build up some momentum with the next three games at the Ricoh Arena.

He added: "We can definitely build on this result and with us not having a midweek fixture, it gives us a chance to work hard on the training pitch and get things right.

"It is important we look at every game as an opportunity to win. We need to breed a bit of confidence into the squad as well for us to improve.

"The FA Cup game next week gives us a great opportunity to do that and we will be taking the game really seriously as we want to progress in every fixture.

"With the next few games at home, it would be a good chance for us to show what we can do and get the Ricoh rocking again."
