Coventry manager Steven Pressley has done a terrific job since joining the club in 2013 from Falkirk. After surviving the structural shake ups and mishaps at the club, he has said that survival for them would be an “unbelievable feat”
The Sky Blues currently lie in 17th place just three points adrift of the relegation zone. After starting the season with -10 points for going into administration, Pressley has managed to guide the club to 50 points, in a position where one more win ensures their survival.
Pressley has had to face a stadium change, a squad re-shuffle and even uncertainty over pay. It seems that he has also managed to prevent them from falling into the bottom tier of English football.
His top-goalscorer Leon Clarke jumped ship to Wolves in January to play at a higher level. Added onto that the club were placed under a season long transfer embargo meaning he could not replace his prolific striker.
Despite the remarkable job he has done, Coventry fans believe he their club should have finished in a higher position in the league which is understandable as at one point they were in 11th spot. Some Coventry ultras have even suggested that Pressley deserves to be relieved of his managerial duties. However, that would appear to be a very unfair and unjustified judgement to have been made.
