"It's nice to get a goal, it's one of my better ones but it really doesn't matter after today." Coventry City's Jacob Murphy

The winger netted an incredible strike but admitted that it doesn't matter after City were defeated 2-1...

Coventry City midfielder Jacob Murphy believed that the Sky Blues were worthy of a point after their 2-1 defeat to Walsall at the Banks's Stadium.

Murphy scored an unbelievable goal to get City back into the game at 2-0 down, as he smashed a thunderbolt into the top corner from 25-yards.

The strike, worthy of winning any game, wasn't enough for the Sky Blues to get a result and as a result, the Norwich loanee downplayed the goal as it didn't help City to a good result.

"It is a disappointed changing room," Murphy said.

"To go two goals down we had to come out fighting and up our game. 

"It's nice to get a goal, it's one of my better ones and there is more to come. But it doesn't matter at all today. I think we were good enough for a point as we were much better in the second-half.

"The manager told us to go out there and play a bit higher up the pitch in the second-half and in front of those travelling fans.

"We've got a lot of character and we won't get too disheartened by the result, we've started strong so far."

Murphy also talked about his time with the Sky Blues so far, admitting that he is enjoying getting to know his new team-mates.

The midfielder is also hopeful that team-mate James Maddison's injury isn't too serious after the 18-year old hobbled off after just six minutes of the game.

"Everyone in the dressing room is really talented and despite the result today I'm enjoying my time here. 

"I just want to help the club get to the right end of ther table and add a bit of pace and creativity.

"Obviously the front players have started so strongly and I've had to bide my time. But I'm hopeful James' injury isn't too serious. He's a key player for us and lets hope it's not a nasty one."
