INTERVIEW: Marc McNulty Looks Ahead To Accrington Clash

The Sky Blues face Accrington Stanley this weekend...

9 February 2018

This weekend, the Sky Blues entertain Accrington Stanley in League Two action at the Ricoh Arena, in what is to be a bumper crowd for Community Day.

Over 27,000 tickets have been sold for the game and City are looking to pick up a vital three points against a promotion rival and extend their winning run to eight games in all competitions at home.

Coventry striker, Marc McNulty will head into the game on the back of picking up Sky Bet League Two Player of the Month for January earlier this week.

McNulty has found the back of the net on 10 occasions in his last 11 games and believes confidence is key to his goal scoring form.

He said: “I think it’s important to everyone. I think some people can deal with playing when they’re not so confident, which is probably the case for me at the start of the season.

“I wasn’t scoring so much, but I was still confident it was going to change at some point and it luckily it did change for me.

“A lot of managers have said to me sometimes I’m my own worst enemy and maybe I over analyse some stuff, but that’s just how I am, I always want to do better.”

Marc has scored 16 goals in all competitions this season, with ten of those coming at the Ricoh this season.

McNulty spoke of his excitement to get back at the Ricoh this weekend for Community Day and for the opportunity to play in front of a huge crowd this weekend.

“I’m very excited, credit to all the fans and the club for giving away so many tickets it will definitely help the players one million percent.

“The lads love playing in front of the big crowds and it generates a great atmosphere and it’s great for the club as well as the players.

“I think to be honest if there were 1,000 supporters or 30,000, we know the pressure of this game and we’re going into win of course and it’s coming to the business end now and we need to put a run together.

“There’s still 16 games left and a lot of points to play for, obviously were looking towards May and you’re thinking there isn’t long left, but in terms of games there is still a lot to play but it’s important the quicker you put your run together the better.”
