'Late decision on Wilson' - Pressley

20 December 2013

City boss Steven Pressley has also revealed he has a lot of admiration for Swindon's style of play...

Coventry City manager Steven Pressley has confirmed he will make a decision on the fitness of striker Callum Wilson later on today ahead of the trip to Swindon tomorrow.

The Coventry-born striker picked up a slight groin injury during the 2-1 win over Hartlepool United and was substituted late on in the game for Billy Daniels.

Wilson has been in brilliant form this season, scoring 14 goals this season with 13 of them coming in League One.

Pressley hopes he is available for selection but will need to make a late decision on the 21-year old's fitness. 

The City boss said: "The latest we have on Callum Wilson is that he is still a little tender in that area. 

"He will spend a bit of time with the physio today and we will have to leave the decision until later in the day.

"He has played a lot of football this season and his body might be feeling the affects of that. 

"I am still hopeful he will be available tomorrow as it is a difficult game for us."

Swindon are currently eighth in the League One table but have the second best home form in the League, winning seven games at home so far this season. 

The City boss has been really impressed by Swindon's form this season but believes his side will be more than a match to Swindon.

He added: "When you look at other clubs in the league this season, Swindon are one of the sides who has really impressed me.

"They play a very patient game and as a result, they have some of the highest passing stats in the League.

"Their ball retention is really impressive and I admire how they play. It will be a really good test for us. 

"As I say every week though, as long as we get up to those required standards we know we can produce, we can get a result."
