Aidy Boothroyd has backed Marlon King to hit the goal trail sooner rather than later as he looks to kick-start his Coventry career.
The striker has seen his well-documented return to professional football hampered by a series of niggling injuries, with just two starts and four substitute appearances since running out for the first time in almost a year towards the end of September.
He enjoyed 90 minutes for the first time on Tuesday night as the Sky Blues went down 2-1 at Nottingham Forest and, despite fluffing his lines in front of goal, manager Boothroyd is certain he will break his duck in the not too distant future.
"Marlon had three chances late on and they are normally goals for him," he said. "In two games time he will score but he is finding his feet still and he is getting better and better.
"He will score goals for us, though, I have no doubt about that."
