McGoldrick still hungry for goals

City striker says cup double just makes him want to learn more and score more

Coventry City striker David McGoldrick says he is still hungry for goals and still hungry to learn after his double display in theSky Blues' Johnstone's Paint Trophy win over York City on Tuesday night.

The loan striker hit two goals alongside strikes from Callum Ball and Chris Hussey at Bootham Crescent to send Mark Robins' side into the competition's regional quarter-final.

The 24-year-old's rich vein of form since joining the Sky Blues on loan has seen him net five goals in his stay at the Ricoh Arena so far with four of them coming in the last five games.

He said though that he would not be getting carried away with what he had already achieved but what he can still learn and what he can still do to help City in terms of performances and goals.


"I've got to keep going. I need to keep learning and I need to keep scoring because there's still loads of games left in my loan spell. I'm only 24 and I want to keep adding bits to my game and keep improving so hopefully I can do that and help the club," he said.

McGoldrick, whose loan spell with the club runs until January, added that the result against the Ministermen would only help City grow in confidence.

"We are growing in confidence although you probably couldn't see that in the first half. We needed to get control of the ball and the gaffer got into us at half time and we ended up coming out more confident.

"We got more shots in and ended up controlling the second half which was good because we've not created too many chances in games this season so to create so many against York gives us confidence.

"You have to give York credit though because they play good football and they are a good side. They are doing alright at the moment so to get four goals against them is great for confidence."

McGoldrick said in midweek that he was enjoying his upfront partnership with Callum Ball, one which has seen the Sky Blues extend their unbeaten run in all competitions to four games, and he added he was enjoying the company.

"Callum got his goal and I got mine and long may it continue. Carl Baker was making good forward runs and Flecky was as well and James Bailey and Franck Moussa pushed forward and joined in as well and that's what the gaffer wants.

"He wants those forward runs coming from midfield because it helps us out upfront."
