The Sky Blues made it back-to-back wins at the start of their League Two campaign, defeating Grimsby Town at Blundell Park...
The striker scored his first competitive goal for the club despite protests from the oppoisition, but the goal stood as the Sky Blues went on to claim another three points.
McNulty said: "I seen the centre-half taking the free-kick and play it back to the 'keeper. As you do I chased it down, got on the end of it and put it into the net.
"They seemed to lose their head a little about it but from my point of view I didn't see a problem with it. They've taken it and I've managed to get there first.
"There was a moment you wonder if it was going to be disallowed but I'm not bothered with controversary, I'm here to score goals and I'm delighted I could do that today."
The Sky Blues grew into the contest after a scrappy opening to the game, and is expecting alot of fixtures this season to be similar.
"I think we'll see alot of games this season where teams will want to get in your face during the first half, especially away from home with the backing from the stands.
"We know ourselves we were giving the ball away too much and going longer in the first half. On the flipside you have to turn teams and play in behind them to have any success in the attacking third.
"Second half they were deep as they were probably expecting us to continue going long but it gave us more space to run into. Both myself and Stuart Beavon had more time and Jodi Jones used the space well also,"
He added: "I think we all offer something a little different in attack. Jodi has that spark and attacking ability to go past a player and Vincenti is a great outlet with his height. It's useful to be able to switch up our play."
