Sky Blues midfielder thanks Sky Blue Army for spurring City on to rout over Hartlepool

Sky Blues midfielder Franck Moussa said City had the fans to thank in part for their five-goal rout over Hartlepool at Victoria Park on Saturday.

Moussa opened his goalscoring account for the club with City's fourth after a Carl Baker double and a David McGoldrick penalty had given them a healthy cushion with Adam Barton coming off the bench to grab a fifth.

It was a return to the starting line-up for the Belgian playmaker who said manager Mark Robins had given him strict instructions to go out and make his mark.

"The manager told me I would be starting on Saturday and he told me to make sure I went out and gave a good performance. I was really keen to do that and it feels good that the whole team did the same," he said.

"It's definitely pleasing for me to get my first goal because I said when I came to the club that I wanted to bring something extra to the attacking side of the team and the goal has been a long time coming.

"The fans were brilliant as well. They brought a real atmosphere with them. The manager told us at half time to carry on as we had been doing as he thought we were close to goal and he said when we got that first one we needed to push for more.

"The fans behind the goal then started asking for three, four and five and we gave them what they asked for because the support they have given us they deserved it."
