Coventry City reportedly sent a scout to watch Dundee United striker Lawrence Shankland – and the forward did not disappoint in their 2-1 win over St Mirren.

The forward scored an incredible volley in the Scottish Premier League clash as boss Mark Robins continues to keep track of the striker.

Coventry have reportedly been keeping tabs on Shankland since he played for Ayr and it is claimed by the Courier that Sky Blues send scouts to constantly monitor his progress.

Boss Robins is said to be considering making another move for another forward to help bolster his attack which is currently being spearheaded by Matty Godden.

The Sky Blues also have Tyler Walker on their books after signing him for an undisclosed fee from Nottingham Forest during the summer.

Coventry could make a move for Shankland to add further strength in depth and Shankland’s goal won praise from ex-Scotland international James McFadden.

Speaking on Sportscene, he said: “Jim Goodwin (the St Mirren manager) says they allowed him too much space but I don’t think they did.

“It was (about) Lawrence Shankland’s movement, his speed of thought to get himself into that position. He is quickest to react and that is an absolutely brilliant finish.

“It is typical of a striker who knows where the goal is. He is not concentrating on hitting it oo hard. He knows exactly where the goal is and just guides it into the corner.

“It is a brilliant finish and that’s what they (United) have been missing.”
