Coventry manager Steven Pressley has stated that he is happy with the point from the recent match against MK Dons despite the fact that the club still have just one victory on the board. Coventry have started the League One season in poor fashion after managing only one win, a narrow 1-0 win over Sheffield United at home, this campaign. Their opening match of the season ended in a 3-2 defeat against Bradford City away from home. Last week’s 2-2 draw with Barnsley saw the team criticised for their defending and now they could only muster a 0-0 draw with MK Dons.
Pressley has openly admitted that he does not think that the squad is not complete yet and that he would like more reinforcements in the final few days of the transfer window. However, fans will be more than pleased with the three match unbeaten run that could continue to build their season. Next week will be a difficult away trip to Swindon Town followed by two home matches against Gillingham and Yeovil Town. Fans will be hoping that they can enter into the home matches with some form rather than having to search deep for the points.
Coventry will have to build on the recent form and start picking up victories, which is something Pressley is more than aware of. “This was a game involving two very good teams, played to a very high standard for a League One game and one thing I believe is it’s a really good point on our travels because MK Dons are one of the best sides in the division. They have recruited extremely well over the summer and this time of year the pitches are well suited to the passing style of football so I knew this would be a real, real test for us,” said Pressley.
