Goal means nothing without win

City striker David McGoldrick says his first goal for City is meaningless without three points

Coventry City striker David McGoldrick says he will not be celebrating his first goal for the club after the Sky Blues went down 2-1 at home to Stevenage.

The 24-year-old opened his account for City with a stunning tenth-minute opener only for the Boro to turnover the deficit and come back to win the game through goals from Robin Shroot and second half substitute Marcus Haber.

McGoldrick said: "I can't really go home and celebrate because we've lost the game. It was one we should've won because we had plenty of chances but after they scored we went a bit flat.

"We started the second half alright but then they scored again and the boys were devastated in the dressing room after.

The City hitman, on loan from Nottingham Forest until January, had another goal disallowed in the first half for a foul on Stevenage 'keeper Chris Day and very nearly put the Sky Blues back infront with a second half header only to be denied a smart save from day.

He added that had that chance gone in it might have been a diferent outcome.

"I maybe should have scored in the second half and from that maybe we could've held on to get the win but we conceded a sloppy goal from a corner and it really is fine lines at the minute.

"I think if we can get that first win under out belts we'll be fine but League One is a tough place and nobody steamrollers this league. The Ricoh Arena is a great stadium and Coventry City is a big club and people will come here and raise their game because it's a big day for alot of clubs.

"But the boys have been working hard in training and I'm confident that first win will come. It might not be pretty when it does but when we get it we will be alright."
