Coventry City manager Steven Pressley has backed striker Marcus Tudgay ahead of the weekend's game against Yeovil Town, speaking to the Coventry Telegraph.

The City striker made an impressive return to the first-team in the 2-0 win over Walsall, scoring the second goal, but has unfortunately missed the last two games through injury.

The City boss believes the system the Sky Blues will play against Yeovil Town will suit the former Derby County striker and has backed him to lead the line.

Pressley said: "Marcus is beginning to show signs of what he really was.

“A month ago we might have considered allowing him to go but we won’t now. He’s back in training this week with a spring in his step and we’re playing a system that suits him more now in the 4-2-3-1.

“I think when he plays in the top up there it’s very much his position and he leads the line particularly well. When you look around, especially in the predicament we’re in, there is some form of experience and good mentality within the group but I think Marcus ticks those boxes.”
