Giles Coke is determined to aid Sheffield Wednesday’s revival by chipping in with more goals.

Dave Jones Owls outfit are currently averaging one goal a match and the team’s lack of a cutting edge in the final third is threatening to drag them into a second successive relegation battle.

No player in Wednesday’s squad has scored more than two goals this season, a record which urgently needs addressing if Jones’ troops are to climb out of the Championship relegation zone. The Owls have slipped to 23rd in the standings after draws with Brighton, Ipswich and Bolton.

Indeed, only David Prutton has found the back of the net from the middle of the park in the league.

Coke, whose last Wednesday goal came back in March 2011, told The Star: “I would like to contribute more goals. Midfielders need to chip in with goals. You can’t just rely on strikers. I know I need to add that to my game. Once I get one, hopefully I will go on a run.”

The 27-year-old added: “I am still really happy and settled in Sheffield. I love the club and that has not changed at all. We need to start winning games. Happiness comes when you are winning games.”
