Coleman backs Wales to score against Serbia

Chris Coleman believes Wales can manage what Scotland did not and score against Serbia in their World Cup qualification meeting on Tuesday, the BBC has reported.

Serbia and Scotland played out a goalless draw at Hampden Park on Saturday while Wales were beaten 2-0 at home by Belgium the day before. It was the fourth consecutive game in which Wales have failed to find the back of the net but Coleman has retained faith in his players, and insists they have the ability to break their duck against Serbia.

Coleman said: “We have creators and players who can finish. We will score goals and I thought we were going to get a goal against Belgium.

The scoreless streak runs back to February, when Wales played Costa Rica in a memorial match for Gary Speed, a game which Coleman believes it is not fair to include in the run as the minds of the players were not on the football being played.

Coleman added that out of the remaining three games - against Mexico, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Belgium - he has overall been pleased with the way in which his side performed, with the Bosnia game the exception.

Liverpool midfielder Joe Allen is expected to return for Wales against Serbia having pulled out of the Belgium match after feeling unwell.
