Coleman vows to increase goals output for Everton

Seamus Coleman Everton 2015-16Seamus Coleman wants to end the season with a flurry of goals for Everton.

The right back has struck just once during the 2015/16 campaign – his solitary strike coming against Stoke City in the 3- away win at the Britannia Stadium.

His record this season pales in comparison to the numbers he registered in 2013/14 and 2014/15, where the Republic of Ireland international bagged seven and five goals respectively.

Coleman was denied a goal on two occasions in Wednesday night’s 0-0 draw at Crystal Palace, with his second forcing keeper Wayne Hennessey into a sprawling save to turn behind his right foot volley.

And, speaking after the clash at Selhurst Park, 27-year-old Coleman insisted he needed to add more goals to his game to help the Toffees improve on their position in the Premier League table.

“I’ve looked at my own game in the last couple of months and I haven’t been getting in those positions where I used to,” said Coleman candidly.

“I’ve had a talk about it and I’ve decided to start getting back in at the back post.

“With the volley, I made the run, got in, it was a great ball from Baz [Leighton Baines] and I’ve just tried to connect with the ball and, unfortunately, it didn’t go in.

“But hopefully between now and the end of the season I’ll be creeping in towards that back post again and starting to grab some goals.”
