Coventry City midfielder Franck Moussa is confident he can fill any forward role for City after the 2-0 loss against Fleetwood Town.

Late goals from David Ball and Antoni Sarcevic secured the win for the Cod Army in City's second pre-season game in just 24 hours.

Moussa played a full 90 minutes at Highbury and was able to fill in several roles during the night, including up front.

The Belgian-born play-maker says he is willing to play anywhere City boss Steven Pressley wants him to play along the forward line.

Moussa said: "The manager wants the centre-forwards to start the pressing game which we are working on constantly in training.

"If I am playing in an advanced position, even from midfield, I think he would like to see us pushing high up the pitch to put the opposition under pressure.

"It may not be a straight 4-4-2 but I have clear instructions to work hard. I have played several positions throughout my career though and I would like to think I am more effective playing centrally.

"It is up to the manager where he wants to play me but as long as I am in attacking areas, I know I can be a threat."

With the start of the season at Crawley Town coming closer with every pre-season game which passes, Moussa has already set his sights on the first match of the 2013/14 League One season.

He added: "I am really looking forward to getting the season started because that is why we are putting in a lot of hard work now.

"The hard work will continue with two more games this week and then a week of training ahead of the match at Crawley.

"It was a difficult day when we last went there but hopefully we can go there and get off to a good start."
