Steven Pressley calls for Coventry City to kick on

15 December 2014

Coventry City boss Steven Pressley has urged his players to build on their second away victory on the bounce to make a steady climb up the Sky Bet League 1 table.

Pressley's side had failed to win any of their first eight league games on the road before securing three points at Colchester three weeks ago.

And he believes following that up with a well deserved 2-0 success at Vale Park can prove to be another important building block in the search for consistency.

Pressley said: "In the last six leagues games we've won three, drawn two and lost one, but that's only a start. We must show we can be consistent over many more games than that if we are to achieve anything.

"I was very pleased today because this was a very professional performance. It was also another clean sheet and that will breed confidence.

"There was a real desire from all of the players to get this result and that is always a very good starting point. Without that desire, you've got nothing.

"We defended well for the most part, but there is no doubt we still need to improve in some aspects.

"If our final pass had been better we could have scored more goals and that was a bit frustrating, especially in the first-half.

"Eventually we did get it right with a great cross from Matthew Pennington and a super header from Reda Johnson. Since we put Reda at left-back he's been outstanding.

"He's been strong and diligent in his defending, but he also shows a desire to get into the opposition box and cause problems."
