I've Had To Change My Game - O'Donovan

More from City forward Coventry City forward Roy O'Donovan has said that he has had to change his game in order to fit in with the Sky Blues way of playing. Speaking to the CT, O'Donovan said: “I think my game has developed since I came back here. “I waited so long for a chance that I had to work on things. "But if I’m a marginally better player I’m definitely a much hungrier one and I will work doubly hard this year to make up for lost time. “If you’re a winger or a striker you’ve probably got more chance of being dropped than anybody else in the team because you’re the figurehead. “You go through spells where you can’t score at all and then times when you can’t stop scoring; if it’s going well do that you’re the main man, if you don’t you’re the worst player anybody’s ever seen. “But I relish that. "You can’t afford to dwell on misses, you’ve got to look forward to the next chance, hitting the target, working the keeper and hopefully seeing it nestle in the back of the net. “It’s a matter of being brave, getting in there, getting your foot or your head to the goal.” Speaking about tomorrow's game in the North East, O'Donovan who has played for Sunderland and Hartlepool said:Middlesbrough are playing very well at the moment. “It will be a very tough game but none of them are easy because it’s a hard league – especially for us because the squad is stretched very thin. “But we’re getting somewhere I think. "We’ve lost four games this season but, barring the Bury game, I think we’ve played well in all of them so there are plenty of positives. “I don’t think we’re that far away and having been given my chance I’m looking forward to scoring some goals for the club so I can keep my place. “There’s always pressure on strikers to get goals but thankfully I’m a happy-go-lucky guy – I don’t let things get me down. “And I’d much rather be in the team worried about losing my place than not being in the team or not even getting on the bench like last year.”   Picture copyright of Covsupport News Service.
