    Steven Pressley: Hopes to see Coventry return to its home
    Coventry City manager Steven Pressley believes his players would receive a “huge lift” ahead of the new season should they be allowed to return to the Ricoh Arena.

    The club are currently seeking a solution with the stadium’s numerous owners that would see them play their home fixtures back in the town in which they were formed.
    Last season, the League One club were forced to play their home games 35 miles away at Northampton Town’s Sixfields stadium in front of hugely reduced crowds.
    The Football League as well as owning parties Sisu, Otium, ACL and Coventry City Council have all expressed a desire to begin discussions to bring the club home.
    And Pressley told Sky Sports News: “It would be fantastic for everybody involved with the club but especially the supporters, who have endured a great deal over the last 16 to 18 months.
    “In the last close-season we were dealt the hammer-blow of a 10-point deduction on the eve of the season, so it would be fantastic to receive a boost in this pre-season that we can return to the club’s home.
    “It will make a massive difference. There’s no guarantee it would in terms of results but in terms of the feel-good-factor around the club it would make a huge difference.
    “It would be wonderful to play at your home ground and I do think the players would receive a huge list from that kind of news.”

    Was that a Pressley quote or just the "journo" preamble?

    Force applied by SISU obviously.
