Signed as the Bright Enobakhare alternative over the summer, Callum O’Hare has quickly demonstrated why he is worthy of that mantle, even if he is yet to truly catch fire in a Coventry City shirt. A bundle of energy, and surprisingly committed in the tackle, who is constantly trying to make things happen with his ball-carrying ability, finding the best role for O’Hare while the side has started the season relatively well in a 4-3-3 system feels like what will be the difference between O’Hare looking the wonderfully talented player that he clearly is and delivering a tangible impact in terms of goals and assists.
Setting the bar high with contributions from the bench that were too good to ignore, O’Hare starting in either a fairly deep central midfield role or on the wing has seen him sparkle but without quite delivering the end product that he is clearly capable of doing so. In spite of that, he remains a vital cog in the side as an injection of tempo in midfield. In a vaguely reminiscent manner to Tom Bayliss, O’Hare’s urgency and skill offers a change of pace in midfield to what his team-mates are capable of doing. O’Hare looks like the kind of player who could step up at any minute and win games on his own on a consistent basis, it’s up to Mark Robins to provide him the platform to do so, which is probably going to involve playing him closer to goal.
