The manager of Coventry City, Steven Pressley, is looking to bring a couple of players in his squad before Thursday which is the deadline for making emergency loan signings.

Coventry City’s performance in their last couple of home games has been disastrous. First they were defeated by Tranmere Rovers by a huge margin of 1-5 last Saturday and then, yesterday, they suffered another heavy defeat against Rotherham United.

Because of those two defeats, the Sky Blues have moved down to no. 13 in the League One points table.

Coventry is not looking that strong upfront at the moment and Pressley is aware of that weakness of his team. Thus, he is looking to sign a quality striker on loan and the first name in his list is reported to be Chris Dagnall who plays for Barnsley in the Npower Championship.

Coventry had come into the ongoing League One with -10 in the points’ column. If that had not been the case, they would have been in top 10 in the League One points table by now. They have actually secured 31 points in the League One this season, but, because of that penalty of 10 points, they have got only 21 in the points’ column at the moment.

Talking to the reporters yesterday, Pressley said, “I think it’s time to bring a bit of fresh energy in the camp. We are looking to secure the services of a couple of guys in the next 2-3 days. Let’s see what happens.”

“The players who are in the squad at the moment haven’t performed poorly so far. But, bringing some new guys in is definitely going to help us.”

Coventry City’s next match is against MK Dons. That match will be played at Stadium mk on Saturday.
