Sky Blues striker Jack McBean is hoping his goalscoring form for the Under-23s can aid his chances of getting a first-team call up. 

McBean scored his seventh goal of the season during the Development side’s 3-1 win against Crystal Palace in South-London, as the young Sky Blues continued their recent winning run. 

The 21-year-old admits his game is improving as he adjusts to English football. He said: “I am feeling confident in front of goal now, and I believe if I get chance I can score it. 

“I think everyone wants to move up, myself including. Even though I am only here on loan I want to represent the highest level I can and be scoring goals for whoever I am playing for.

“I thought the team played very well today, overcoming a slow start to control most of the match. Once we got into the lead it was always going to be difficult for them come back with the confidence we’re playing with.”

Following his loan move to Coventry from LA Galaxy in August, McBean has noticed a change in playing style in England, compared to that of America. 

“The pace of the game is completely different. It’s a lot quicker in England with everyone flying into challenges and trying to close you down. 

“Your decision making has to be a lot quicker, because if you take too much time of the ball the opposition will be upon you. It’s something I’m getting used to know I’ve been here a little while,”

He added: “The last month has been a lot better for me personally. I am enjoying being here and the challenge that brings. I feel it is a really good club, that is improving me as a player.”
