“I was in the right place at the right time. The goal got the three points so I am happy.” - Coventry City’s Marc-Antoine Fortune

12 March 2016

Fortune nets for City, taking his goal tally to three for the season, and bags Coventry City three more points in the hunt for a top six finish...

Marc-Antoine Fortune rewarded Tony Mowbray with a goal after securing his second start in as many games for City.

The three points were hard fought at Bloomfield Road, but extremely welcome for Mowbray’s side as they ended a four game winless streak.

Fortune scored the only goal of the game as he was the first to react to a goalkeeping spillage by Colin Doyle and the City forward was pleased to get back on the scoresheet.

Fortune said: “I am happy with the three goals, it has come at the right moment for me. I haven’t had much opportunity to play so three is okay.

“The manager has to make choices, I always think about the team first. I will play if I’m the right choice.”

The Sky Blues fans travelled in their numbers to Blackpool in support of Mowbray’s men and managed to outnumber the Seasiders fans inside Bloomfield Road. 

After a disappointing run of League One results, the Sky Blue army were in full voice on the final whistle as City claimed a vital three points to reignite the play-off chase. 

Talking about Tuesday evening, Fortune commented: “I think we didn’t deserve the lose the last game, we had more chances than them. I am looking forward to the next game now.

“For me, we have trust in ourselves. We will keep going, its been difficult for us recently. It’s not easy when you are used to winning. But I don’t think we are lacking confidence.

“There are 10 games left, we will take it game by game and try to pick up some more points.”
