Millwall keen on Pressley

Sky Sports understands Steven Pressley is happy to stay at Coventry despite being linked with the vacant manager's job at Millwall

Sky sources have learnt Pressley is among Millwall's top targets to replace Steve Lomas at the Den, but it is understood that Pressley is happy to stay at Coventry despite the interest from the Championship club.

Millwall are looking for a new manager after Lomas was sacked on Boxing Day following a 4-0 defeat by Watford.

A host of names have been linked with the vacancy at the Den and it is thought Pressley's work at Coventry has seen him win admirers in the Millwall boardroom.

Pressley is regarded as one of the best young managers in the country after the impressive job he has done at Coventry so far in difficult circumstances.

The 40-year-old, who took over at Coventry last March, has guided the Sky Blues to 10th spot in League One this season, despite being deducted 10 points at the start of the campaign for going into administration.

Without the deduction Coventry would be in fifth spot in the table, but as it stands they are just six points off the promotion places despite Pressley working on a shoestring budget.

The former Celtic and Hearts defender is understood to be happy at Coventry and is not thinking of leaving the club.
