'Best goal I've ever scored' - Moussa

18 January 2014

Coventry City midfielder Franck Moussa has lauded City's team spirit after securing a point at Deepdale...

Coventry City midfielder Franck Moussa confirmed his last-minute strike to secure the 1-1 draw at Preston North End was 'the best goal' he's ever scored.

The Sky Blues looked like they were destined to return to the Midlands with nothing after Kevin Davies poked home a Lee Holmes cross early in the second-half. 

Davies was sent off for reckless challenge on Andy Webster with four minutes to go and in the seventh minute of stoppage time, Moussa found the top corner from 30 yards to secure a valuable point.

The City midfielder was delighted with his goal, believing he will struggle to score a better goal in his career. 

Moussa said: "It was incredible. It was the best goal I have ever scored. With the way the game went and it being at the death, it meant so much to everyone.

"It was the perfect strike for me. To score from such a great distance in the final moment of the game, it is difficult to describe.

"I wasn't involved in the build-up as I was really tired so I couldn't keep up but luckily they cleared it out to me. 

"I chested it down and it just felt right when I hit it. It was incredible when it went into the top corner."

The draw at Deepdale means City have only lost once in 11 matches and stand eight points outside the play-off positions.

The Belgian midfielder believes the team spirit sees the side always battle until the end to get a result.

He added: "We deserved it as we didn't stop playing and didn't stop going. There was a lot of stoppage time so we had to keep battling.

"To come to a place like this and get a point is a great result. They are up there and we need to be getting points from these teams.

"It feels like a win. When you battle back and put so much effort in, to get it rewarded is a great feeling."
