INTERVIEW: Marc McNulty Previews The Upcoming Visit Of Mansfield

McNulty looks ahead to tomorrow's clash...

10 November 2017

This weekend, the Sky Blues host Steve Evans, Mansfield Town side, as they get back to Sky Bet League Two action at the Ricoh Arena.

Back to back wins in cup competitions since the last league game has extended City’s unbeaten run to four games, with the three latter games all being victories for Mark Robins side.

In the last outing in the league, City won 3-0 away from home against Luton Town and on the score sheet that day, was Marc McNulty.

The striker bagged his fourth goal for the club at Kenilworth Road and is hoping he can kick on and continue to find the net on a more regular basis.

He said: “It seems a long time since the Luton game for me.

“I got myself a goal and it was a good result for the boys and we’re full of confidence, we’re looking forward to getting back to the league action.

“Speaking for myself, you want to score every week as a striker, but sometimes that’s not possible and you need to keep the confidence in yourself.

“The managers good with us, he keeps at the boys and keeps our confidence up and you just hope that one week when it goes in for you, you can go on a little run.

“We need to try hard and work hard in training. I haven’t got as many goals as I would have liked, but sometimes that happens and I’m confident in myself that one stage in the season I will start firing.

“There’s been a lot of changes and different partnerships up front this season and the Gaffer is right in doing so, because no one has really banged in goals, so it’s very frustrating, especially for myself.

“You want to score as many goals you can, but it’s been a slow start and I’m sure the goals will start coming.”

Next up, The Stags make the trip to the Ricoh Arena, a side Marc scored his first goal against in English football when he joined Sheffield United back in 2014.

The 25 year-old is expecting a difficult game from Mansfield, but is looking forward to the challenge the visitors will bring.

“It’s going to be a tough game, I think Steve Evans sides are always organised and they will work really hard and they will be in our faces.

“I think when teams come to the Ricoh, they know we keep a lot of clean sheets and it’s different for them, they come here and set-up defensively and I think we’ve found it hard sometimes, which has been our problem.

“That final decision in the final third is what stands between ourselves and three points.

“But, we just need to play our game tomorrow and worry about ourselves and I’m sure we will take care of it. It’ll be another tough game but were looking forward to it.”
