“Hopefully we can meet our ambitions, and our ambition has always got to be to get out of this league.” - Coventry City’s Tony Mowbray

5 August 2016

Tony Mowbray issues statement of intent, as the Sky Blues set to lift the lid on League One proceedings tomorrow...

The City boss gave fans a message of optimism during this morning’s press conference, with Mowbray stressing that the club have aims to compete at the summit of League One this season. 

Having topped the leaderboard for a chunk of the 2015/16 campaign, Mowbray will be urging his side to go one further in a bid for the next tier of English football.

Ahead of the club’s League One opener tomorrow, Mowbray said: “The message for any supporter of any team is to stick with the team, there will be good days and bad days, and I don’t want to preach to fans. Ultimately, you can’t change the team you support - it is through thick and thin.

“What we will try and do this year is entertain, score goals, try and be a team in the image of what we managed to produce in the first six months of last season. A team that people who support Coventry can be proud of.

“As I’ve said from day one, this club should be a league above if not two. That’s always the goal and yet it is not easy, we’re playing in a league where if we are to achieve that we need to punch above our weight. 

“This can be done of course, as teams have shown in the past and lets see if we can find that bond in the group to be successful. We want to make people want to come and enjoy the football at the Ricoh Arena.”
