Gaffer ready for Coventry test

15 August 2014

Blades boss Nigel Clough says Steven Pressley deserves a lot of respect for his work at Coventry City.

The Sky Blues will continue to play their 'home' matches at Northampton Town's Sixfields Stadium this season, but Clough believes there should be a real admiration for how the City boss and his players have handled the difficult circumstances surrounding the club.

The Gaffer knows the Blades head down the M1 knowing it will a real tough encounter on Saturday afternoon, regardless of the off field events.

Clough commented: "It is tough for the fans of Coventry City and we saw a number of supporters continuing to demonstrate at the game against Cardiff in midweek.

"But Steven Pressley has done and continues to do a fantastic job there. He has managed to keep the players focused on the football and he deserves a lot of credit and praise for the success they had last season.

"They must feel it is them against the world, nobody will look forward to going to Northampton to play Coventry but they have made light of the situation and used it to their advantage when it could have easily had a negative effect on them.

"We played there against Northampton in pre-season, but we are certainly ready for a very, very difficult game at the weekend and we will need to be at our best."
