'Won't see better than that' - Pressley

21 December 2013

City boss devastated for his players after they fail to turn a 'magnificent' performance into points at the County Ground

Sky Blues boss Steven Pressley lauded the 'outstanding' performance of his side which was overshadowed by a 2-1 defeat away nto Swindon Town.

Leon Clarke scored the opener against his former side five minutes after the break but goals from substitutes Yaser Kasim and Miles Storey stole the game for the hosts in the last 15 minutes.

Pressley said he was disappointed and devasted for his players to come away with nothing but said that their performance was as good as supporters wil see.

"Since coming to the club the opening 45 minutes from us was as good as you're likely to see. Make no mistake we played against a side that dominates at home yet we were magnificent and always looked a threat," he said.

"We hit the bar and the post and were incredibly unlucky because today's game was as good as a standard as I've seen at League One level. The conditions were difficult but the game was played by two excellent sides and my players could not have given any more. They left everything on the pitch and I'm devastated for them.

"If we give more performances like that we'll win plenty of games, no doubt about it, and our brilliant travelling support could see it from their reaction after the game. They knew how much the players gave.

"It's just disappointing because you want to win games, of course you do, but if we can keep playing like the way we have today we'll win plenty.

"Some of the football we played was sensational. Our passing was quick and aggressive, our pressing was top level and it's exactly the type of football I want to see. It was a brilliant performance but we have nothing to show for it."
