After a period without scoring, the Sky Blues put three past league leaders Luton Town at Kenilworth Road on Saturday.
It was striker Marc McNulty’s goal which broke the barren spell, and set Mark Robins’ side on the way to an impressive away win.
McNulty said after the game that it was a result which he felt City were deserving of.
“To come here to a team top of the league and are a good side and get three points, it was good.
“We were confident. We’ve been working hard in training over the last week. I thought we deserved the three points.
“First half we were pretty comfortable. Second half they had a spell where they were the better team, we couldn’t get hold of the ball as much as we wanted. Lee Burge made a couple of great saves to keep us in the game at 1-0. I think we did well enough.”
The striker had scored three goals for the Sky Blues prior to the Luton game, and was clearly pleased to find the back of the net.
“I was feeling pressure from myself. I came here to score goals. It’s been frustrating and a bit stop-start. The Manager has stuck by me, been brilliant and kept my confidence high.”
Reflecting on his goal, the striker praised the cross from winger Jodi Jones.
“We work a lot on set plays and I’m rarely the one to score headers. It was a great ball in from Jodi, and as a striker they are the type of balls you want into the box.”
McNulty was through on goal in stoppage time when he was brought down just outside the box by Luton’s Glen Rea, earning the defender a red card and the Sky Blues a free-kick which Jordan Shipley would dispatch into the top corner.
“I thought eight minutes was going to be a long time” said McNulty.
“Duke (Duckens Nazon) was trying to hit the free-kick, but I said no give it to Ships. I know how sweet a left foot he has got, I think most of us knew he would hit the target but for it to fly in, it took a lot of pressure off us.”
The result, and each goal, was met with wild celebrations from both the Sky Blue Army and the players themselves, reflecting the strong spirit which is developing.
“We win as a team, keep clean sheets as a team and score as a team” said the striker.
“We’re a team and it’s all about team spirit.”
