Freddie Sears believes Daryl Murphy’s tough run in front of goal is close to coming to an end.

Having led the Championship scoring charts last season with 27 goals, Irishman Murphy has failed to score in 2015/16 but has turned in a series of improved displays in recent weeks following a difficult start to the season.

Despite his struggles, Sears insisted his strike partner is still finding the net regularly in training and that it’s only a matter of time before he does so in competitive action.

“Murph’s a good player, he’s showed that and he’s been good for the last couple of weeks,” Sears said.

“He’s been unlucky with that final ball and the final goal but he’ll get there for sure, he scored 27 goals last season so he’s going to score.

“They’ve been flying in for him in training but now it’s about him doing it on a Saturday afternoon.”
