Defender Todd Kane reacts to bagging a last-minute equaliser as he earnt City a point against Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium.

After going behind by two goals, City were headed towards defeat down on the south coast.

However, as the Sky Blues have done many a time this season, late goals from Matty Godden and Todd Kane inspired a spectuacular comeback and helped secure a valuable point.

Goalscorer Todd Kane spoke after netting a dramatic stoppage-time equaliser- his first goal in Sky Blue colours.

“It was a great reaction, we came in at half-time, we felt we’d get an opportunity, going 2-0 down the group that we’ve got here we just kept going and it had the same feeling as Bristol, we kept going and look what happened.

“I was getting the ball wide numerous times, putting it in the box, unlucky not to get Godders or Callum on the end, but we kept going, I was putting the ball in the right areas and there comes a point where I thought I’m having a shot here, so I got the ball and whipped it and it went in.

“When I was getting the ball and crossing it, the keeper is naturally going to think I’m going to cross it, so he was a little off his line and in the end I thought I’m not too far out, its a narrow pitch, so I took the shot, as I felt I had to do something there.”

Kane also touched on fellow goalscorer, the in-form Godden, and what he brings to the side.

“He’s absolutely flying, the way he trains, he’s one of the best finishers I’ve seen. I didn’t really know about him before I came here, but the first day I watched him train and the way he finishes is outstanding, the way he’s playing, he fully deserves it. 

“All of his finishes and his goals, since I’ve been here, he practices them in training every day, it’s all about working hard and look at what he’s doing, he’s flying.”

Having signed for City on transfer deadline day, Kane joined the Sky Blues a few matches into the season.

The defender reflected on his personal performances this season, and spoke on the squad’s ambitions for the remainder of the campaign.

“To be honest, coming in eight weeks into the season I knew it wasn’t going to be easy, but I came here because of what the manager and his assistant said to me.

 “I came in got my head down and I’ve worked hard, been patient and every time I get an opportunity I’ve grabbed it with both hands, I feel like I can bring a lot to this team and when I’m called upon by the manager it’s in my hands to take 

“I’m a team player, I want this club to do well and with how things are going at the moment there’s a good feeling about this season.

“Look at the run we’ve had for the past two weeks, these are the teams that are up there, Sheffield United came down from the Premier League, today we’ve had second in the table and then we’ve got West Brom in third, these are the teams you want to be playing, to test yourself.

“I’m buzzing for the fans, the way they sing from start to end is brilliant and it gives us an extra buzz.
