Sky Blues boss says he is looking forward to what he expects to be an exciting and unpredictable League One campaign
Coventry City boss Steven Pressley says he is relishing the 'tough start' that has been handed to the Sky Blues for their 2014/15 League One campaign.
City kick off their new season with an away trip to Bradford before home ties to Sheffield United and Barnsley, who were relegated from the Championship last season.
The second game of the Sky Blues' season also sees them take on Cardiff City, who were relegated from the Premier League, in the first round of the Capital One Cup at Sixfields.

Pressley said: "It looks like a tough start because you would expect Bradford to be around the play-offs and teams like Sheffield United and Barnsley to be strong contenders for automatic promotion.
"I've always said though that I don't read into the fixtures too much. They're only good or bad fixtures depending on the results that you get from them.
"Last season many of our best performances were against the top teams so we should take great confidence from that."

The Sky Blues manager also commented on the overall look of League One which he says is shaping up to be both exciting and unpredictable in equal measure.
"I've come to expect that every game in League One is going to be difficult. If you take Rotherham as an example you could see how strong they were having gained promotion the previous season.
"I think the league this year will be more competitive than last year. Last season we had Wolves with a level of real standout resource and while we have teams in the league this year with an ability to invest like Bristol City and Sheffield United I believe this is going to be a very exciting, competitive and unpredictable season."
