Coventry opt for Steven Pressley as manager

Steven Pressley has been confirmed as Coventry's third permanent manager of the season, after signing a three-and-a-half-year deal.

The League One club were granted permission to hold discussions with the Falkirk manager on Wednesday and, having revealed talks were "progressing well" on Thursday, personal terms were finalised, with Pressley replacing Mark Robins following his switch to Huddersfield three weeks ago.

Development director Steve Waggott said: "He's a hungry and highly ambitious young manager and we have all been very impressed with him."
