Coventry City boss Steven Pressley admits he might need to freshen the group up after the defeat to Rotherham...
Coventry City manager Steven Pressley has remained upbeat despite the Sky Blues' 3-0 home defeat to Rotherham United at Sixfields.
Second half goals from Nouha Dicko, Alex Revell and Kieran Agard subjected the Sky Blues to a second consecutive home league defeat.
Pressley admitted the result was a disappointing one but added it was also important to remember how far his side have come so early in the season.
“Tonight has been disappointing again, but we need to remember how far we’ve come this season. When you look at Portsmouth last season, who didn’t look like surviving after being deducted ten points, we’ve done fantastically well to be in mid-table.”
Pressley has also called for realism after tonight’s result, which now sees Coventry seven points off the top six, but added it was also a priority to strengthen his 'thin' squad before the close of the loan deadline on Thursday.
“Obviously people were talking about promotion during our good run but it’s important to be realistic. It’s a young side who play on confidence.
“It looks like the last few games have caught up to them, I might need to bring in a few players to freshen the group up. We have been working hard to try and do that but unfortunately could not make any additions before tonight.
"These players have done extremely well thus far though so we need to look at bringing some bodies in to give the squad a boost and give us a hand."
