The City striker took his tally to five for the Sky Blues with the crucial first goal in the 2-0 victory over Fleetwood Town...

Coventry City striker Dominic Samuel believed that the Sky Blues created their own luck and were excellent in their 2-0 win over Fleetwood Town.

Samuel netted the crucial first goal after he latched onto Jim O'Brien's pass and surged into the area, hitting a shot under the 'keeper just two minutes from time.

The Sky Blues front man was delighted with the goal despite it not being a clean strike and also revealed that manager Tony Mowbray has taught him a lot already about his roles in the final third.

"It feels great to get the win, the whole team put a massive shift in and you couldn't ask for any more," Samuel said.

"With games like today you've got to keep going until the final minute and hard work pays off. You create your own luck and we're super proud of each other.

"For the goal, Jim's pass was brilliant, he's a great player and when he played it to me I was on the go. All goals count! I'm still happy with the goal, it wasn't one of my best strikes! But it went in and I'm happy with the team and the performance, it was brilliant.

"The gaffer has been great, he's a great manager and I'm learning different roles that he wants me to play. It has taken me a game or so get used to what he wants me to do but I spoke to him during the week and got my reward tonight."

The striker has now got five goals for the Sky Blues since he joined the club in January and admits there is a friendly competition in the dressing room between the strikers.

That camaraderie in the dressing room has helped the club record back-to-back wins according to Samuel, who also said that he is really enjoying his time with City.

He continued: "We banter each other in changing room, teasing each other saying 'you can't keep up with me,' know each other well and we've played with each other when we were young, we know what we can do.

"I don't know how many Frank is on but he won't be beating me until the end of the season that's for sure!

"I'm loving my time here I really am. It's a great club and we shouldn't be where we are, but I'm really enjoying my spell here. Back-to-back wins is great and the lads have been great, but we've got to continue that against Doncaster."
