'I want to show what I'm made of'

Full back Blair Adams wants to make most of his chance to impress boss Pressley in season curtain-call

Coventry City full back Blair Adams says he is excited about the chance to show manager Steven Pressley was he is capable of.

The 21-year-old left back is expected to return to the first team fold for the last clash of the season away at Notts County following a two-month lay-off with a knee injury.

Adams has been sidelined for the duration of boss Pressley's tenure to date and the youngster says he is looking forward to the first opportunity to impress him on the pitch with the first team.

"It's a really big opportunity for me. I've missed the last two months so Saturday is a chance for me to show the gaffer what I can do," he said.

"Hopefully I can be in his plans for next season because being out these past two months I wanted to make sure I got my return right so I can stay fit although I've been out probably a bit longer than first expected."

Adams is coming to the end of the first six months of a two-and-a-half-year deal after turning a loan move from Sunderland into a permanent switch in the January transfer window.

He added that he is excited about what the 2013/14 season may hold for the Sky Blued and fully expects the club to be in the promotion mix under Pressley's charge.

"It will be a big season for us next season and I'm sure we'll be right up there," he said.

"The manager knows what he wants and how he wants to play and that's great for me to hear because he likes to pass the ball.

"He's very organised, he expects high standards and he's all about working at a high intensity including in training and I really enjoy that.

"I'm just delighted that I've got an opportunity to play in the last game of the season because I can show him what I'm about and hopefully I can make a case to be part of his plans as he plans for next season."
