Coventry City manager Steven Pressley was delighted to see his side come from behind twice to pick up a point in the 2-2 draw at Notts County.

In the final game of the 2012/13 season and backed by 1,477 City fans, John Fleck and Franck Moussa both scored second half goals so City claimed a point. 

Having made five changes to the side which lost at home to Leyton Orient, Pressley praised his team's attitude in the final game of the season.

Pressley said: "I thought we were terrific. We dominated the majority of the game and by the end of the match, you could say we should have won.

"To go behind the way we did was extremely disappointing, especially the second goal with it being right after our equaliser, but the response from the players was brilliant.

"We have a determined group and the attitude was spot on today. I thought we played some good football as well with our pressing game really coming through in the end.

"We could be disappointed not to win, especially with that chance at the end, but it is a good way to end the season as there were plenty of positives."

One of the changes Pressley made for the trip to County was to bring Conor Thomas into the side, as the City boss was delighted with the midfielder's contribution.

He added: "There were a lot of good performances and I made a lot of changes to the side which can often make it difficult.

"I thought the players adapted well to the system and I thought Conor Thomas had a great game in the middle of the park.

"He showed a lot of energy and a willingness to get on the ball which I was really happy with. I am pleased with the way we showed for the ball as well.

"It seems a lot of players are beginning to get used to playing the pressing game and there are a lot of positives to take into pre-season."
