Wales manager Chris Coleman is confident his side can end their goal drought in tomorrow's World Cup qualifier against Serbia in Novi Sad.

Friday night's 2-0 defeat in their opening Group A game against Belgium in Cardiff was the fourth in a row in which they have not scored.

But Coleman, below, insists he is happy with the chances they are creating. "Our last three games have been against three very good teams in Mexico, Bosnia and now Belgium, but the only performance I was not happy with was against Bosnia," he said. "We now have to go to Serbia, put in a performance like we did against Belgium and we need to put the ball in the net."

Serbia also failed to score in their opener, as they were held 0-0 against Scotland at Hampden Park on Saturday. Defender Christophe Berra feels it will prove to be a good point if the Scots win at home to Macedonia tomorrow. "If we walk away with four points that would be pleasing all round," he said.
