Coventry City manager Steven Pressley reveals that he is planning to reduce the size of the club's playing squad during the summer.

Coventry City manager Steven Pressley has revealed that he will reduce the size of the club's playing squad during the summer.

The Sky Blues were deducted 10 points earlier this season for going into administration and are also under a transfer embargo.

Pressley, who was appointed manager in March, believes that he needs to work with a smaller squad next season if Coventry are to challenge for promotion.

"When I came in I knew I had six or seven weeks to assess the squad and see what type of players I had to work with," Pressley told Coventry's official website.

"I knew it would be difficult to assess them in a first-team environment but the 10-point deduction has given me that opportunity to assess my options. Of course I wanted us to fight for the playoff places but once the deduction happened, I knew it presented an opportunity.

"Moving forward, I do believe we need to reduce the size of the group. I want a more manageable group, a hungry group. That is a group which can take the club forward and that is what I will be working towards."

Coventry sit 16th in League One with two games of the season remaining.
