Marc McNulty believes Conor Chaplin can thrive at Coventry City. 

The ex-Pompey loanee feels Sky Blues boss Mark Robins will bring the best out of his former Fratton Park team-mate.

Chaplin is keen to move to the Ricoh Arena before Friday’s loan window closes.

The striker has become frustrated by a lack of first-team opportunities at Pompey and seeks a fresh start.

McNulty played alongside Chaplin when he was on loan at Fratton Park from Sheffield United during the 2016-17 campaign.

The Scot netted 28 goals for Coventry last season before departing for Championship outfit Reading earlier this summer.

Chaplin is the marksman Robins has identified to fill McNulty‘s boots at the Sky Blues.

And McNulty has insisted the Worthing talent – who he remains in touch with – can be a hit at the Ricoh Arena. 

He told the Coventry Telegraph: ‘I worked with Conor at Portsmouth and have stayed in touch ever since!

‘He’s a great lad with an amazing attitude. He always wants to learn.

‘He’s a great all-round player that the fans will love!

‘His work-rate is outstanding and I have no doubt he will bring goals to the team.

‘He just needs a regular game and working with someone like Mark Robins will bring out the best in him like it did me.’
