Sky Blues midfielder Callum O’Hare was delighted after City’s win in the first game of the Championship season.
A moment of magic from O’Hare saw the midfielder evade two Nottingham Forest defenders and play the ball in for Gyökeres’ equaliser before Kyle McFazdean smashed home the winner in the final moments of the game to claim the 2-1 victory.
Speaking after the Sky Blues’ win, O’Hare highlighted the huge role of the fans in spurring the side on throughout the contest.
“The atmosphere was unbelievable, I’m just buzzing.” O’Hare mentioned.
“It was unbelievable, we’ve missed the fans so much. I’m so happy that we could put a good performance on for them and get the win.
“The fans were pushing us through, you could hear them singing and when you hear that you want to do well for them.
“The fans will always push us forward, and we spoke about that in the dressing room. We’ve started off well so hopefully we can carry this on.”
O’Hare also looked back on his piece of trickery to create the Sky Blues’ equaliser:
“I had three players around me, so I had to check over my shoulder and pop the ball through his legs, and luckily we scored from it.
“We were dominating the game, but we weren’t taking enough chances. In the second half we had a little change of shape and we got a bit more joy out of it.”
When McFazdean’s last gasp winner hit the net, O’Hare talked about the terrific scenes upon the Sky Blues’ return to the Coventry Building Society Arena.
“I wanted to go mental, but I was so tired! I was trying to run over to the fans, and it was unbelievable when it erupted.
“Hopefully we can get on a run now and keep going.”
Next up for the Sky Blues is Northampton Town, who visit the Coventry Building Society Arena in the Carabao Cup.
