City boss says fans are getting their money's worth after another goalfest at Sixfields

Coventry City boss Steven Pressley said fans coming to Sixfields are certainly getting their value for money following the Sky Blues' 3-2 home win over Sheffield United.

A brace from Leon Clarke and one from Callum Wilson proved enough for City to register back-to-back league wins despite a fightback from the Blades midway through the second half when they were three goals down.

The win takes the Sky Blues' home goals tally to 16 from just six games and Pressley said the goal return was down to the standard of footbal his side have been playing.

"Fans are certainly getting their money's worth here. Thats now 29 goals they've seen here this season. The 16 that are ours though is an incredible tally and it's credit to the players because it's them producing the level of football that has allowed us to score so many,"he said.

"When you're 3-0 up at home though and dominating in the way we were for the first 60 minutes you don't expect the final stages to pan out the way that they did but it's still a win for us and another great one at that.

"You have to give credit to Sheffield United though. You always get a response from players when they lose a manager. They played like they had nothing to lose and really went for it.

"That being said we had a number of really good chances to put the game beyond doubt."

Pressley also took the time to comment on individual performances, most notably his strike partnership that have now amassed 18 goals between them so far this season.

"For Leon and Callum to get 18 goals between is an incredible return. They're forming a great partnership and the three goals they scored today were outstanding.

"It's not just the goals that impress me though. It's been their work ethic when not in posssession. Carl Baker also impressed me today because he's come back in after injury and performed magnificently well despite not training for the past two weeks.

"It's been a great result for us today and puts us on ten points now so hopefully we can keep building."
