McAllister Warns Future Opposition

Gary McAllister, Coventry City FCCoventry City midfielder Gary McAllister has fired a warning to the Sky Blues forthcoming opposition after netting another crucial goal for his club.

The City skipper volleyed home Saturday’s equaliser at Goodison Park and now believes he can recapture the goal-scoring feats of his championship winning days at Leeds United.

He said:

"When I was at Leicester and Leeds I was always good for double figures in a season, and hopefully I am well on my way to achieving that this year.

"It is always nice to get on the scoresheet, and I can’t remember the last time I had chalked up five goals this early in a campaign.

"It is definitely my aim to reach double figures for Coventry this season but the results at the end of matches are the most important thing."

And the former Scotland captain, who is enjoying the his richest vein of form since joining the club under Ron Atkinson four years ago, believes the signing of former team-mate Carlton Palmer has made a big difference.

"Anyone who knows Carlton will tell you that he is a bubbly character and he gets the best out of everybody around him by geeing them up and keeping them going.

"I knew that it would not take him time to settle. He has come breezing right into the changing rooms and made a difference – he is a good asset to the club."

The 34-year-old is now hoping that the Sky Blues can built on their three game unbeaten run and banish the memory of their poor start to the season.

"We have now had three good results on the bounce, wins against Tranmere and West Ham and a point against a side who are not playing too badly at all so we are on the right track.

"There is a break now and although it would have been nice to keep the momentum going there are people here who have been playing a lot of football and it will give them a chance to recharge their batteries."
