Steven Pressley: Full of praise all-round

The hosts were 2-1 up after a first Notts goal for youngster Tyrell Waite and a Krystian Pearce strike which came either side of a cracking leveller by John Fleck.

However, the Sky Blues were rewarded for their late pressure against the tiring Magpies when substitute Franck Moussa secured a point with an 87th-minute equaliser.

Pressley said: "I thought we were excellent, bar a 15 minute period in the first half. We started the game really brightly and had some good opportunities but then we lost our way a bit.

"The second half was as good as we have played for a while and we controlled the game for long periods. I thought we were very unfortunate not to win the game.

"I'm very proud of the performance and of the reaction. It was the final game of the season and to go behind twice and to show that desire is terrific.

"We had a real responsibility to the supporters today as I thought they were wonderful. They turned out in their numbers again and gave terrific support.

"So I'm pleased with our work, just disappointed we couldn't win it."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
