"For us to survive with such a small squad, 10-point deduction and playing at Sixfields was an achievement." Coventry City's Steven Pressley

28 December 2014

Steven Pressley and Neil MacFarlane give PUSB an exclusive in-depth Q and A over a whole host of topics regarding the past year...

Coventry City manager Steven Pressley and assistant manager Neil MacFarlane spoke candidly to club programme PUSB about the past year and the challenges it has brought.

The Sky Blues management duo spoke about a range of topics, with everything from player recruitment, playing at Sixfields and the highs and lows of 2014.

Despite the range of experiences, Pressley and MacFarlane said that securing the club's League One status was the highlight of their year as they discussed a whole host of topics in the exclusive interview.

"The highlight this year was when we guaranteed survival in League One," Pressley said.

"We shouldn’t under-estimate how big an achievement that was. We were in a situation where we were in a transfer embargo and where we’d released many players from the previous season going into the season.

"For us to survive with such a small squad, the transfer embargo, the 10-point deduction and playing at Sixfields, it was an achievement and we should be proud of that."

The full interview features alongside more exclusive content from the award winning PUSB, including more exclusive interviews from the Academy with Under-18s coach Jason Farndon and Under-21s coach Darren Murray giving their assessment on another year of progression.

Andy Webster also takes part in our Changing Places feature, as well at a look back at some of our greatest festive matches. This, on top of our extensive visitors section and a whole lot more, is available in PUSB around the ground for just £3!
