City Boss On Gillingham

Coventry City manager Steven Pressley has said that his side have to deal with an aggressive Gillingham side when the sides meet on Sunday at Sxfields Stadium.

Speaking to the Coventry Telegraph, Pressley said: “I think we have got a bit of momentum just now while Gillingham are still looking for their first win.

“But I had a look at their statistics and they have drawn with some good teams already, like Bristol City, Swindon and Brentford.

"They went to Crawley and narrowly lost out but they are very aggressive in their style of play.

“They have been starting with two very robust strikers and they like to get the ball forward and put you under pressure. And I have found in this league if you take your eye off the ball you’re in trouble.

“But it’s a game we must believe we can win again. And if we play with the intensity and application we have been then I know we’re capable of winning.

“They have got big lads and they utilise that. They have got long throw-ins which they put into your box and they ask you to defend set-pieces. They are aggressive and we need to be able to deal with that.”

Tickets are available and you get a ticket from the booths outside the ground.
