How is Steven Pressley getting on ever since leaving Coventry City?



Steven Pressley has been a busy man since being sacked by Coventry City in 2015, embarking on three new challenges as the main man in the dugout.

First came Fleetwood Town after a brief spell as a scout for Southampton, the former centre back managed the Cod Army between October 2015 and July 2016 when he resigned from his post.

Pressley had safely steered the ship to a 19th placed finish in League One and made way for Uwe Rosler to arrive at the helm.

This was a period of immense change for Fleetwood Town as off the field investment helped them become competitive at the top end of the third tier.

Pressley’s next adventure was more unconventional taking on a challenge in the Cypriot top-flight with Pafos for a brief time before returning to the Football League.

The Scotsman found his way to a League Two hotseat in the form of Carlisle United in January 2019 after John Sheridan’s departure.

It was tough act to follow in Cumbria as both Sheridan and Pressley failed to live up to the standards set by Keith Curle who preceded them.

It was a disappointing reign for Pressley who took over with Carlisle in the play-off places and failed to keep them there and he was sacked in the November with the club languishing in 19th place.
