Coventry City manager Steven Pressley has admitted he's only focused on the next game ahead of tomorrow's trip to Port Vale.

The Sky Blues travel to Staffordshire to face the Valiants having only suffered one defeat in the last five League One games.

City have also kept it tight at the back in the League, having only conceded one goal in the three league games and won their last away league game at Colchester United.

Port Vale currently sit in 15th position and City will go above the Valiants with a win, and Pressley has urged his side to get a result.

The City boss said: "We've got to go there and get the right result. We saw some positives on Wednesday night but we've got to create more goal-scoring opportunities.

"I think if we can build on that performance against Bristol, then we can do that. It is really important game for us.

"Looking at the league table and seeing where they are and where we are, it has vital importance to us. I think we've got to go there and win.

"We've done well in the league lately but goals have been missing and we need to make sure we create more chances at the weekend."

City face a difficult Christmas period with games against Fleetwood Town, Doncaster Rovers, Chesterfield and Midlands rivals Walsall.

Whilst the City boss admitted momentum is key, he says his current focus is the next game at Vale Park. 

He added: "My sole concern is the next game. People keep talking about putting a sustained run of games together but the evidence isn't there just now.

"Our pure focus is the next game and getting the right result in it before moving on to the next one. I know it's a cliche but it's so true.

"We want to build momentum, of course, but the only way we'll achieve momentum isn't by looking into the future but by winning the next game.

"Port Vale will provide us with a difficult test but I'm sure if we play to our best and our strengths, we can get the right result."
