Pressley fumes at officials

Steven Pressley blasted match officials after four players were sent off within half-an-hour in Coventry's 0-0 draw with AEL Kalloni.

Danny Pugh and Billy Daniels both saw red for Coventry in the opening 29 minutes of the pre-season friendly, whilst their Greek opponents had Paul Keite and Manuel Dalgado removed from the field of play.

Pressley expressed his bemusement at the decisions, labelling them "farcical".

"The referee made some really bizarre decisions and to be honest I've never seen anything quite like it," he told the club's official website.

"What I say I say without any bias and while you could make a case for the sending off of the two opposition players, our dismissals were a little bit farcical.

"In all, though, the players responded very well to the defeat in our previous fixture and gave me another performance full of positives, despite the bizarre first half-an-hour."
