'I'm here for the long haul' - Pressley

16 December 2013

Coventry City manager Steven Pressley also believes he saw positive signs in the 2-2 draw against Crewe...

Coventry City manager Steven Pressley has reiterated his desire to build a long-term future for the club.

The Scot moved to the club in March from Falkirk and has overseen a fantastic start to the 2013/14 League One season by the Sky Blues.

Despite a 10-point deduction, City are currently placed in the top-half of the table and are the joint top-scorers in the League.

As City prepare to face Hartlepool United tomorrow night in an FA Cup second round replay, Pressley says he 'wants to see the job through.'

Answering whether he is interested in any of the current vacanies in the Football League, Pressley said: "None whatsoever.

"I have said I am here for the long haul and I geniuely mean that. I am really happy here and with the progress we have made on the pitch this season.

"I have asked the players to commit to the club for the long-term as I want to build a successful future for the football club.

"No matter what anyone says or any story says, I want to see this job through."  

Coventry secured a point against Crewe Alexandra at the weekend meaning City are nine points off the play-off positions.

The City manager was disappointed not to secure all three points but was happy with the intensity his players showed.

He added: "Of course, we want to win every game but sometimes, it just doesn't happen.

"Having looked at the statistics from the game, I think our performance was a lot nearer to the performances we had three or four weeks ago.

"We couldn't get the winning goal but I was happy with the effort my players put in and I can't really ask for more than that.

"The most important thing for me was they showed signs of progress going into the busy Christmas period."
