'My goal means nothing' - John Fleck

The City midfielder also believes City need one more win to assure the club of safety...

Coventry City midfielder John Fleck believes his first goal of the season means 'nothing' after the 2-1 defeat to Swindon Town. 

Swindon's Alex Pritchard swept home a close range finish after eight minutes to give the Robins the advantage but John Fleck fired a low shot past Wes Foderingham three minutes before the break to make it honours even.

After an even second-half, Michael Smith glanced home a winner with just a minute of added time to go which leaves the Sky Blues five points above the bottom four.

After scoring his first goal of the season for the Sky Blues, Fleck was disappointed with the manner of the equaliser.

The Scottish midfielder said: "They dominated the opening 20 minutes or so as we had a slow start like we did last week and we probably need to work on that.

"I thought after that, we were the better side and we got the goal we deserved. It was a fairly even game in the second half. You can concede goals like that in the last minute.

"It is a tough one for us to take as I thought we deserved at least a point. We're five points away now and we need some results.

"Out of the remaining four games, I'm sure another win will see us safe but we should be picking points like that up. It is a disappointing dressing room but we need to pick ourselves up."

The Sky Blues travel to Oldham Athletic on Easter Monday for a crucial League One match as City look to get the points to assure the club of League One safety.

He added: "It will be a tough game like today was but I think we just need to put away a few chances and we'll get the points we need.

"I was happy to score today but at the end of the day, it means nothing. I have wanted to score all season but not in a loss.

"I need to add more goals to my game and I will be working on that next season."
