Pressley on Hughes

Coventry City manager Steven Pressley has said that he learnt a lot from John 'Yogi' Hughes who brings his Hartlepool United side to the Ricoh Arena tomorrow.

Speaking about Hughes, whom Pressley played for at Falkirk, Pressley told the Coventry Telegraph's Andy Turner: “John has a done a wonderful job there, turned them round from a desperate position and got them back in the mix with a chance of survival so they’ll be fighting for their lives.

“He took me to Falkirk for my final five months as a professional player. He’s a very good manager and I’m under no illusions about how difficult this will be.

"I learned a lot from John, who was a first-class coach and very detailed coach. He was very much one of the coaches who began to change the game a little bit up the road because he was very forward thinking and successful at Falkirk, so I have a lot of respect for what he has done in the game this far, and he’s certainly making progress in England, so he’s an excellent coach.

“The form guide would suggest that they are one of the form teams although their league position doesn’t show that. But like every game, we’ll approach this one with a real mentality about winning and that’s what we’ll be setting out to do.”
