"It was great to see the club drop the prices for the game. We need to entice supporters." - Coventry City's Steven Pressley

16 December 2014

The City boss believes his side have improved recently but there is still a long way to go to where he wants them...

Coventry City manager Steven Pressley hopes the reduced ticket prices will see more fans at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday.

The Sky Blues face Fleetwood Town on Saturday, with kick-off at 3pm, having dropped the prices to £10 for adults, £5 for concessions and £1 for children.

City will be aiming for back-to-back wins after their impressive 2-0 win over Port Vale on Saturday and Pressley hopes for a bumper crowd.

Pressley said: "It was great to see the club drop the prices for the game and hopefully, it will see more fans there on Saturday.

"It is up to us to entice supporters to the Ricoh Arena with entertaining and winning football, and we need to show those qualities against Fleetwood.

"I do think the Football League need to look at the pricing of tickets anyways as it is getting very difficult for families to come to the football due to the cost.

"It is a big game because we've got a chance to go on a run over the Christmas period and keep climbing the league table."

The Sky Blues have only conceded one goal in four league games and only lost one game in six in the league going into the Christmas period.

The City boss believes the Sky Blues are improving as a team but has urged his side to continue to improve in the forward areas.

He added: "We're improving as a team. Our performances recently have been very good but there is still a lot of work to do.

"We're not conceding many goals at the moment but I'd still like us to improve in the forward areas and create more chances.

"The supporters have always been brilliant with me. They were brilliant at the weekend and it was great to give them another away win.

"I'm committed in everything I do. I think they want to see their manager show a real passion and desire."
