It's Finding The Balance - Pressley

City Boss On Finding The Balance

Coventry City manager Steven Pressley continues to search for the perfect balance between scoring goals and conceding them.

City are the top scorers in the Football League with 37 but have conceded more goals than the manager, players and the City support would like.

Pressley told the Coventry Telegraph's Alan Poole: "It's difficult to get the balance because I don't want to get away from the exciting, fast, flowing football.

"I want us to evolve into a team that plays that way but then is able to control the game with more possession than we are at this moment in time.

"I want us to be aggressive in our pressing but more controlled in our possession and really wait until that opportunity arises where we can go and exploit them again.

"Sometimes, we're 2-0 up and so desperate to make it 3-0 or 4-0 that we don't quite control the game in possession as much as I'd like, but that is part of the on-going improvement of the team.

"It's finding the balance in not becoming a possession of the ball team with no end product and being able to control the game and create good chances.
