Coventry City manager Steven Pressley has revealed he is looking forward to seeing the Sky Blue Army back his side against Bradford City.

The Sky Blues open their 2014/15 League One campaign at Valley Parade tomorrow against the Bantams as City look to better their 18th place finish last season.

The club have already sold over 1250 tickets for the first game of the season, with a further 750 tickets available on the gate.

As the City boss makes his final preparations for the game at Valley Parade, Pressley said he's pleased with the pre-season preparations and hopes to see a large travelling support.

Pressley said: "There have been a mixture of performances during pre-season but I've been really pleased with the way the squad have adapted to the 3-5-2 formation.

"We definitely look a more solid unit this pre-season but maybe we need to continue to work on our attacking threat. I'm sure that will come.

"We saw that with the Bristol Rovers game on the Friday night so we'll be looking to demonstrate those qualities against Bradford.

"Everyone always gets excited about the start of the new season. One of the best things about the club is our away support to hear we've sold plenty of tickets already is brilliant. I'm looking forward to seeing their support tomorrow and I'm sure they'll get right behind us."

The City boss has many options across the park going into the game, especially up front where he has to pick a front two from his three strikers; Shaun Miller, Marcus Tudgay and Josh McQuoid.

Talking about the AFC Bouremouth loanee McQuoid, the City boss confessed he has a chance of starting against the Bantams.

He added: "I think he has got a real chance of playing. He has come in this week and demonstrated a lot of qualities which suit our style of play.

"Bournemouth play a similar style of football to us so he is used to the hard work which is required in the system we play. 

"He has really brought into the ethos at the club. I think he will be a very good bit of business for the club and he excites me."
