'Players gave me everything' - Pressley

17 November 2013

City boss proud of his players' performance but disappointed with Bradford's approach after six-goal stalemate at Valley Parade

Coventry City boss Steven Pressley has said his players need to hold their heads high after they we denied a fourth straight league win at Bradford City.

The Sky Blues were holding on to a 3-2 lead after a riproaring first half at the Coral Windows Stadium which saw Andy Webster, Leon Clarke and Callum Wilson get onto the scoresheet.

Nahki Wells though completed a hat-trick with a last gasp penalty to give the Bantams a share of the spoils and deny Coventry the opportunity to leapfrog them in the League One table.

Pressley said: "My team were exceptional today. They worked very hard and yes the players are disappointed but they shouldn't be because they've given me absolutely everything today.

"The goals we are scoring is a testament to the kind of football we are playing because we don't just want to win, we want to win in style. It's just unfortunate that a refereeing decision has cost us a win.

"I thought it was a very professional performance from us. I spoke to the players about what I wanted to see in the second half and I saw that in abundance.

"Bradford are a difficult side to play against especially at home but you talk about the development of the game and I thought what I saw was dark age football. I was bitterly disappointed with how they went about their business. It was long ball wth no build up.

"We showed great character though I thought. We got ourselves ahead early on and I was pleased at the character on show to get ourselves back infront after they drew level, our unbeaten run continues and I hope the fans are enjoying the football that's on show."
