Pressley says weekend clash is another opportunity to show commitment to passing style

Coventry City boss Steven Pressley says Saturday's end-of-season clash at Notts County is another opportunity to continue laying the foudations for the style of play he wants to become the fabric of the club.

The Sky Blues close out there 2012/13 league campaign with the trip to Meadow Lane and rather than just see the game out with little incident, Pressley says he wants to put out a side that are capable of getting a result and going about it the righ way.

"Yes it's the last game of the season but we've worked hard this week towards getting a result because we have a certain style of play that we want to adopt," Pressley said.

"Saturday is another opportunity for us to take another step closer to that style.

"We have a clear vision for this club and there's been no real direction here for quite some time and I will not compromise on the style I want to bring here.

"It's my firm belief that you have an idea and a philosophy and it's important that you stick to it and get better at that philosophy rather than just reverting to something else in the short term because you think it might be easier."

While Pressley has made it clear that he intends to make as much use of the weekend curtain call as possible, he did say that he of course had one eye of the summer where he would continue to work around the clock to shape a side he believes can be successful in League One next season.

"We have to be hungry when we come back in the summer because we want success here. We will work tirelessly over that period and including after this season ends because we want to shape a side that we believe can bring that success.

"It's well documented that I will be speaking to all of the players on Sunday after the game and I want to see hungry players. It'll not be a one-way conversation, I want to hear what they have to say as well of course, but I want players with me next season that want to be at Coventry City."
