'It could be goal of the season'

26 September 2013

Franck Moussa reflects on his goal against Port Vale whilst also looking ahead to the game against Brentford...

Coventry City midfielder Franck Moussa believes the Sky Blues will bounce back against Brentford despite the 'disappointment' losing to Port Vale.

Steven Pressley's side lost their first game in six matches at Vale Park despite an incredible 25-yard strike from the Belgian midfielder to put City 2-1 up going into the break.

Unfortunately, goals from Doug Loft and Chris Birchall prevented the Sky Blues from getting anything out of the game as they look to return to winning ways against Brentford.

Moussa was happy with his early goal of the season contender but because of the defeat, he found it difficult to be happy with the goal.

The former Southend midfielder said: "I was pretty happy with the goal on Saturday but unfortunately, it wasn't the winner which is always a little bit disappointing.

"When you score a goal like that, you hope that it means the team will get points out of the game but it wasn't to be. 

"I had the opportunity to shoot and I decided to take it. I have watched it back and it was a great goal to score so maybe it will be up there in the goal of the season competition.

"I am one of quite a few forward players who have already scored this season which just shows we have plenty of goals in the side which is always a good thing."

Despite the loss, Coventry are placed in 20th position in the League One table having been deducted ten points at the start of the 2013/14 season.

Moussa hopes City can bounce back against Brentford and says the squad are really enjoying their football.

He added: "Like I have said before, the lads don't really talk about what has gone on off-the-pitch and it is obvious we haven't let it affect our football.

"We are really enjoying our football at the moment and I think it comes through when you see us play. We love to attack and there is always an eagerness to get forward.

"I want to see us bounce back from the defeat but it will be a difficult test. They have a big squad but that doesn't always mean they're a better team which we have proved already this season.

"Our form at Sixfields has been good so the team are really confident going into the game and we have worked on the things we got wrong last week so we will be ready."
