"I was really pleased with our all-round performance, on another day we would have won that game." Coventry City's Steven Pressley

28 December 2014

The Sky Blues boss also admits his pride at being manager of the club as City look forward to 2014...

Coventry City manager Steven Pressley believed his side were unfortunate not to turn their dominance into goals as they drew 0-0 with Chesterfield at the Ricoh Arena.

The Sky Blues had a number of opportunities but could not to find that killer touch to put the ball in the net.

But Pressley was pleased to see his side bounce back from their Boxing Day defeat to Doncaster and says the side would have won the game on another day.

"In terms of performance it was worthy of a winning performance," Pressley said.

"We were excellent and in control of the game, all the aspects that I continually talk about I thought were very good.

"The Doncaster game was disappointing, we didn't show enough creativity that day but we've got much more control of the game in recent weeks and that was on show again today. The only thing missing again today the goal, it wasn't for the want of trying or chances created, it was purely the ball didn't go in the back of the net.

"We have to definitely score more goals there is no doubt, but we created a lot today and as long as we continue to play football in that manner results will come.

"I was really pleased with our all-round performance, on another day we would have won that game."

The Sky Blues have now played all their matches in 2014 and are next in action against Walsall on January 3rd.

Pressley admits it has been a tough year, but he is proud to be the manager of the Sky Blues and says that the side will only continue to improve.

He continued: "Make no mistake it is a hugely challenging job and I couldn't have picked a more challenging job. But I love it! I have a great vision for this club. 

"Jimmy Hill is an idol at this club but if you look back at the period of his first few years, they were challenging years, it wasn't a clear journey all the way. 

"I'm operating with no degree of finance so a big part of that is developing our own. Against Doncaster it was disappointing, but we had an 18-year old, two 19 year-olds, a 20 year-old and a 22 year-old and that was youngest side in League One.

"Coventry City are a massive football club and we will improve, I'm very confident in what we can achieve here and I'm proud to be manager of this football club."
