Coventry City striker Marc Antoine Fortune revealed he had to put the Paris shootings to the back of his mind after the 3-1 win at Colchester United.

The Sky Blues forward turned in a brilliant performance as City went second in the League One table, and Fortune notched his second goal of the season.

The 34-year old revealed he had friends at the France v Germany game last night and relatives in Paris which meant he was checking for safety until late last night.

Fortune said he had to stay focused on the game and was delighted that the Sky Blues claimed the points, and scored his goal.

The City striker said: "It was the perfect day for me. I'm delighted we've been able to win and always happy to score a goal.

"I think we've got to keep turning in performances like this and try to be consistent. Everyone worked really hard today and we deserved the win.

"I thought I had a good connection with Jacob today. We've been working hard in training this week and I think it came off today.

"It was a really sad day for all French people last night. We need to stay strong. It was difficult as my friends and family live in Paris so I was calling them last night to check and everyone is fine.

"When I scored, I thought about all those people who lost their lives and dedicated that goal to them."
