Goal Will Give Me Confidence - Best

Last updated : 05 January 2009 By Covsupport News Service
Coventry City striker Leon Best has said that his goal against Kidderminster Harriers in Saturday has lifted his confidence.

"I needed that goal for my confidence, and the team deserved it," said Best to the Football League official website. "It made the game nice and comfortable. That's one goal in the League and one in the Cup - hopefully that will trigger a run and I can start scoring a few more.

"I haven't played that many games - that was only my ninth or 10th start. Now I just want to keep my position in the team and hopefully go on a run, score some goals and get us up the League and further in the Cup."

If confidence is Best's main worry then getting all the City supporters back on-side would be a bonus. His goal celebration of turning his back on supporters and his persistent refusal to acknowledge City supporters at away matches is starting to rile many of those who have supported him through what has been a lean period for him.

Whilst we can understand, Leon being annoyed with those who booed him, we can assure him that they do not represent the vast majority of Coventry City  supporters who are willing him to do well everytime he puts on a City shirt and are hopefully now a thing of the past.
