Steven Pressley: Full of praise for Sky Blues

Shaun Williams' penalty had given the Dons a half-time lead but super-sub Maguire curled in two exquisite late free-kicks to win it for the Sky Blues after fellow debutant Chris Dagnall had levelled.

Pressley said: "I thought our second-half performance was terrific.

"We played with intensity and energy and our closing game was brilliant. Our passing, counter-attack football was terrific.

"I was so proud of them and I'm so desperate to give these supporters success - I can't tell you how much I want to bring this club back to where it belongs.

"That was quite phenomenal, the atmosphere in this ground was terrific and I think it was a big thank you from my players with that type of second-half performance.

"It was a wonderful debut for all three of them - Dan Seaborne was outstanding, Chris Dagnall got his goal that his work-ethic deserved and they were two quite phenomenal free-kicks from Chris Maguire.

"I knew Chris had wonderful set-piece delivery but I didn't know it was that good - they were two world-class free-kicks.

"I'm so pleased for the kid because he's had a difficult period over the last two or three months."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
