'I've been given assurances' - Pressley

Coventry City manager Steven Pressley confirmed he has received reassurances from the club's board over the club's future.

Pressley was appointed first team manager last Friday and has enjoyed an unbeaten start to his City tenure, with one win and one draw.

With his main focus the home match against Hartlepool United on Saturday, Pressley said: "The main concern for me is always going to be the football department but when I joined, I did want assurances that there would be stability at the football club.

"I have spoken with Sisu and they are very much behind getting this football club through this difficult period.

"I have spoken to Joy Seppala about that and she wants to get the club through this period so we can build a football club we can be proud of.

"That, for me, is more than good enough. That leaves me to focus on making sure the team produces performances which get the fans through the gates.

"That is, and will always be, my main objective."

The Sky Blues currently sit six points outside the play-off positions and the City boss has called on the Coventry faithful to get behind the players for the last eight games.

He added: "My message to fans would be that we are truly determined as a football club to get through this difficult period.

"Also, for them to stay behind the players as they have been a real shining light this season. 

"We have got so much to fight for and there is a brilliant spirit among the group. That was typified by Tuesday's comeback against Colchester.

"In terms of the footballing department, there is nothing but positivity at the moment."
