"The boys will want to come back with the new additions and put it right. We've got a chance." - Coventry City's Marcus Tudgay

The City striker has backed the Sky Blues boss to lead the club to a successful 2015/16 League One season...

Coventry City striker Marcus Tudgay has backed manager Tony Mowbray to 'put it right' after agreeing a new one-year deal.

The City striker has agreed a new one-year deal with the club to extend his stay with the Sky Blues after flourishing under the former Middlesbrough manager.

The 32-year old scored four goals in 23 appearances, but scored two significant goals in the last four games against Chesterfield and Crawley Town as City kept their League One status.

Tudgay acknowledged that last season 'wasn't good enough' but believes the squad and the manager can strive for success in the 2015/16 League One season.

The City striker said: "I like his ways, I like Tony a lot. He is someone who is straight-forward talking and who tells it how it is.

"We were all disappointed at the end of last season. We were happy to stay in the league of course but we all hoped for a lot more during the campaign.

"The boys will want to come back with the new additions and put it right, especially with the manager and his ways. He'll be looking to have a successful year.

"I think with his coaching and with the squad believing in what he says, I think we've got a good chance to succeed."

The City boss is yet to make a new signing with Mowbray and Technical Director Mark Venus searching, researching and working through a number of targets.

Tudgay has backed the steady approach to the summer transfer window and says it is all about getting the right players in.

He added: "There is absolutely no point in rush buying. He is a proven manager who knows what he wants and I think we can all trust him to bring in the right players.

"As a player signing today, I'm really looking forward to see who comes in and who can make an impact for us on the pitch next season.

"Pre-season starts in a week or so and I'm looking forward to it. Every player dreads the running but the sooner we get a ball at our feet, the better."
