It's Not All Doom And Gloom - Marlon

Coventry City striker Marlon King has said it is not all doom and gloom as the Sky Blues go into next Tuesday's league game against fifth placed Nottingham Forest not having won a league match since December 4th.

King and the City supporters who have seen the last two games, has been boosted by two good performances in the last two matches, even if their efforts didn't yield a full compliment of points.

King, who was sent back into the City starting eleven for the game at Loftus Road after serving a three match suspension, told the CT: "I was obviously champing at the bit to get back so it was good to play again and I am pleased that I got straight back in.

"The boys did well against Sheffield United but the gaffer put me back in and we are disappointed to lose because we thought we could have got something at QPR.

"It's frustrating to know that as a team you are not that far away from the top of the league. It is just the detail and you know that when you are up against quality you get punished, and that's what happened.

"But we have got a cup game to put things right and hopefully go on a little run, so it is not all doom and gloom and we will take the positives out of Sunday's game.

City have played in a different style in the last few matches and King said that he enjoyed free flowing football by saying: "Yeah, I was at the Sheffield United game last week and I said we created a lot of chances and it was disappointing not to get a result, but it does show that we can switch it up and can play a different way.

"But I thrive in whatever is put in front of me. We are all fighting for our places and that keeps you on your toes and you just have to get out and do what's asked of you.

"We posed QPR a different problem again and as I said, it was disappointing to go home with nothing because if you look at the game we had just as many chances and they punished us and we didn't them.

"But we can't dwell on it too much because there is always another game around the corner and we'll get back to the drawing board.

"It was nice to come back and score but we want points to push up the table. The lads have got to keep their heads up and believe in themselves. It just takes a decent run and you can end up anywhere."
