"Delighted to score my first goal for the club. I want to score another against Sheffield United." - Coventry City's Shaun Miller

13 August 2014

The City striker also believes the second-half performance from City deserved to get the Sky Blues level....

Coventry City striker Shaun Miller hopes his goal against Cardiff City has increased his chances of starting against Sheffield United on Saturday.

The Sky Blues faced a difficult test in Championship side Cardiff City and the away side went ahead with just three minutes gone through a Guido Bergstaller.

Despite a better second-half performance, substitute Kadeem Harris doubled Cardiff's before Miller tucked home a Ryan Haynes cross in the 81st minute. 

City rallied late on but couldn't find the equaliser and Miller believes the second-half performance will breed confidence in the young City side.

The City striker said: "I thought we played much better second half against a very good Cardiff City side and we had the chances to get level.

"Always happy to score and to get off the mark in just my second game for the club is great. It gets the first goal out of the way and means I can concentrate on getting more goals.

"I was disappointed with the chance I missed. The keeper did come out early but I think with more games, I'll be putting those chances away.

"We definitely had a better second-half and it is a great education for some of the young players."

City face Sheffield United on Saturday in the second game of the 2014/15 League One season, Miller's former club.

The City striker moved from the Blades in the summer and he hopes he has claimed a starting spot for the League One clash.

He added: "It is always good to play against your former club. I had a lot of good times at the club so it will be nice to see some old faces. 

"I want to start, every player does. I hope the goal tonight gives me a chance of a starting spot on Saturday.

"It will be a tough game as they've built a very good squad but I think we're seeing a lot of positive signs from the side in the last two games.

"We need to keep improving and hopefully I will get the chance to score again on Saturday."
