Coventry City manager Steven Pressley apologised for his conduct during the 3-1 win over Rotherham United.

The City manager was sent to the stands straight after Joe Skarz put the Millers ahead in the 35th minute. 

Pressley had to watch the rest of the game from the Director's Box and saw his team rally in the second half to claim a 3-1 victory.

Speaking after the game, the Scot admitted his emotions got the better of him during the match and apologised for his actions.

Pressley said: "On my own personal performance, I have to apologise. I got caught up in the game and was very emotional. 

"I felt there were decisions which wasn't going our way but I need to behave better than that. 

"It's a learning curve really. Not just for the players, but for myself. I think it had been building up over that period of the game."

The City boss has now lead his side to within six points of the play-offs following the win at the New York Stadium.

He added: "After the goal, I obviously kicked a bottle which landed on the pitch.

"It was a mistake on my part. It was just my emotion towards the game and my frustration spilling over.

"I can only apologise for that as I need to be in the technical area, not sitting in the stands. It's not right.

"I'm a young manager and I'm learning all the time. These are moments I have to do better."
