Steven Pressley: Wants better home form

Oreint midfielder Dean Cox scored the only goal of the game in first-half stoppage time as Coventry's last home game ended in disappointment.

Coventry dominated possession throughout, but could not find a way through.

Pressley said: "Again the final finish or the final pass just let us down, that's the disappointment because there were so many positives to take from the game.

"After dominating for such long periods of the first half it was a bit of a hammer blow to concede just before half-time.

"We responded in the right manner in the second half.

"If we are to make an impact next season we need to take care of our home games because generally those at the top end of the table are very strong at home.

"It's been a difficult season in terms of a lot of uncertainty around the football club.

"It would be wonderful if we could have all those aspects cleared up before the start of next season and we can have a real unity throughout the club because we all want one thing and that is a successful team on the park."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
