With a total of only 29 goals to their name from 27 League One matches to date, Coventry City have added firepower to their ranks with the loan signing of Bright Enobakhare from Wolverhampton Wanderers for the remainder of the campaign.
The 20-year-old switches to the Sky Blues after spending the opening months of the campaign on loan at surprise Scottish title challengers Kilmarnock although his first team chances at Rugby Park have been limited.
His moves come after City’s festive winning run was ended on Saturday with a 2-1 defeat at the hands of struggling Scunthorpe, a game where Mark Robins side improved markedly after the break following the introduction of Jonson Clarke-Harris into the fray at half-time.
The Iron’s deflected opener came during the Sky Blues’ best spell of the game and although the hosts quickly added a fine second there was a quick response through Conor Chaplin and Mark Robins’ side would have been deserving of a point if they had found an equaliser in the closing stages.
Strikers will always feel the heat when there is a lack of goals but the problem at Glanford Park was more a lack of quality balls played into the frontmen and both Chaplin and Clarke-Harris were often foraging for their own chances rather than being presented with goalmouth opportunities.
But a top ten position at this stage of the campaign represents further progress after promotion last season and although they look just a little short of the quality needed to make the play-off places there will hopefully be more ups than downs over the remaining few months.
