Chris Coleman backs Wales to find their scoring touch in Serbia
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 fixture against Belgium in Cardiff was the fourth game in a row in which Wales have drawn a blank. No goals in four games would be a poor return for any side, but particularly for a Welsh side including the likes of Gareth Bale, Aaron Ramsey and Joe Allen.
But Coleman insists he is happy with the chances his side 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, we are aware of that."
Serbia also failed to score in their opener, as they were held to a 0-0 draw against Scotland on Saturday. A section of the Hampden Park crowd booed the home side's players at the final whistle but defender Christophe Berra feels it will prove to be a good point should Scotland win their next Group A match, at home against Macedonia tomorrow.
"If we win on Tuesday we walk away with four points and I think that would be pleasing all round," said the Wolves player. "I think the way we performed against Serbia, who are a top team, when we go over there to play them we won't have any fears."
