Melbourne Heart’s van ‘t Schip worried by goal drought

Melbourne Heart coach John van ‘t Schip admits his side’s goal drought is beginning to cause some anxiousness.

The new A-League club have failed to hit the back of the net in their last three matches despite continually creating chances and the Dutchman knows it is now a severe problem for his charges.

“It's beginning to become a big story," van 't Schip told FoxSports after yesterday’s 3-0 loss to Gold Coast United.

"We're not scoring. In the first half we were playing okay, we were creating chances and then if you don't score it's difficult.

"They were very efficient, they had two shots on goal, from one shot they got a corner and from out of the corner they scored. That's important, that's part of football."

The Heart dropped to sixth position after the defeat and things are not looking good with four losses and a draw in the last five outings.
