Coventry play 'ugly' football

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Coventry boss Steven Pressley Coventry boss Steven Pressley

Coventry will run a late fitness check on goal machine Callum Wilson.

The highly-fancied striker, whose weekend double took his tally for the season to 22, has been troubled by a deep gash on his ankle.

If Steven Pressley decides against risking his top scorer against City tomorrow night, then Blackpool loanee Nathan Eccleston is expected to step in.

Pressley, who famously branded City’s football “dark ages”, has turned to an “ugly” approach to ensure Coventry’s safety.

The Sky Blues have won two in a row playing a cautious 5-1-3-1 formation. Pressley said: “We dominated games in the past but we were conceding soft goals, so we’ve given up a bit of possession and the high press but looked more confident in our defending.

“I make no apologies about how we’ve gone about things. The fans have supported us brilliantly and the players have responded with great heart and determination.

“We’ve won the last two ugly and it’s the first time really this season that we can say that. But now we can go into the game against Bradford with a greater degree of confidence.”
