Di Matteo rues lack of goals

26 October 2009 12:04
Head coach Roberto Di Matteo is refusing to press the panic button as West Brom struggle for goals.

Saturday`s 0-0 draw at Coventry means Albion have now failed to score in four of their last six games - a drought that has coincided with a mini slump that has seen them take just five points from a possible 18.

Their recent record is somewhat alarming considering they managed 20 goals in eight unbeaten games at the start of the season - but a cool Di Matteo is not getting carried away with the problem, although he recognises it could be down to a lack of confidence among his forwards.

"We just have to keep working on it," he said. "We know we can score goals because we`ve scored quite a few in previous games but at the moment it just doesn`t seem to be going for us.

"We do create chances and quite good chances as well, we went one-on-one with the goalkeeper a few times (at Coventry) and you`ve got to take them."

He added: "It might be a confidence thing, we`ll try to work on that as well. At the moment we just don`t seem able to score."
