"I've worked with many managers. Steven Pressley goes into so much detail which is nice." - Coventry City's Nathan Eccleston

25 April 2014

The on-loan City striker also says he is looking forward to playing the 'best side in the division'...

Coventry City on-loan striker Nathan Eccleston has revealed he was surprised by the quality in the City squad ahead of the weekend's game against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The 23-year old is in contention to start against the League One champions at Sixfields tomorrow having started the 0-0 draw against Oldham Athletic on Monday.

Wolves will be looking to break the 100-point barrier whilst City know a win will guarantee the club's safety in League One for next season.

The Blackpool loanee moved to the club in February and admits he has been impressed with the levels of quality in the City squad, especially strike partner Callum Wilson.

Eccleston said: "I'll be honest. When I came to the club, I was a little bit surprised by the amount of quality in the squad as there are many good players here.

"You've got to give a lot of credit to the manager because he gives so much detail to the players in what he wants from the team.

"Especially the strikers because he is big on his striker link-up play. You can see how much Callum Wilson has benefited from that this season.

"I've worked with many managers and it is very nice to come into a club who work on the attacking play to the levels that Steven Pressley does."

It will be City's final home game of the season as the Sky Blues look to make it ten home wins at Sixfields this season.

With the Black Country side crowned League One champions when they recorded a 3-1 win over Leyton Orient, Eccleston knows it will be a difficult game.

He added: "I haven't played them this season but from what I've seen, they're a really good footballing side and the table doesn't lie.

"It will be great occasion though as I want to play in the big games against the best sides, like every footballer does. This is definitely one of those games.

"It is that time in the season where the points are drying up so we need to make sure we're at our very best because we need to focus on what we need to do.

"The players have trained really well this week and I'm sure we'll be bringing our best into the match."
