Cody Getting Sharper

Last updated : 27 October 2011 By Covsupport News Service

Coventry City forward Cody McDonald has said that he feels he is getting sharper.

Speaking at the club's weekly press conference to the Press Association, McDonald said: "The goal has given me a bit of extra confidence.

"Obviously when you don't score it can be a little bit daunting but it was a bit of weight off my shoulders and hopefully I can capitalise on that now and score a couple more

"I feel a lot fresher and a lot sharper (now). I thought my fitness was actually alright when I first came, it was just more my sharpness but I've been working hard in training and I'm starting to feel a lot sharper, hopefully we'll start to see that."

McDonald was asked if he felt under pressure to score goals following his transfer deadline day move from Norwich City for a fee in the region of £500k.

He said: "Not really, you're going to feel it a little bit because you're getting asked the question quite a lot and it does put a little bit more pressure on you that way. 

"The longer you go on you do start to think 'When am I going to get that first goal?', especially as I had a couple of good chances. But thankfully I got it on Saturday and it's important that I push on from that now."
