Coventry City manager Tony Mowbray has stated the transfer window activity will continue beyond this week.

The Sky Blues boss has had a good week at Ryton training ground with Sam Ricketts, Romain Vincelot and Reda Johnson all signing for City.

City are currently preparing for their first pre-season game at Nuneaton Town tomorrow as preparations for the 2015/16 season continue.

Despite the flurry of activity this week, Mowbray has outlined the club are still in the hunt for attacking options.

The City boss said: "I'm happy with the work we've done this week. We've strengthened our options at the back and in midfield.

"There is still work to be done and we've got to focus now on getting our forward and attacking options in to add to the side.

"Hopefully, over the next few weeks, we'll be able to get a few more signings in and keep preparing for the season.

"I'm happy with where we are at but there is still work to be done before we're ready."

The Sky Blues will be playing two different XI's against Nuneaton Town in each half so the City boss has a good look at everyone.

Mowbray confirmed that a few trialists will also take to the pitch looking to impress the City coaching staff.

He added: "It's all about getting minutes on the pitch, being competitive and most importantly, staying injury free.

"I'm not concerned about the numbers as we've got some excellent young players in the squad but also a few trialists who will also play.

"We're going to play two teams so I can have a look at everyone but also make sure everyone gets the fitness they need from it.

"Even though it is a pre-season game, hopefully we can be competitive and give Nuneaton a game."
