Steven Pressley has been named as Coventry's third manager of the season after the League One club agreed a deal with Scottish First Divison side Falkirk. The appointment brings an end to a three-week search following the sudden departure of Mark Robins in February, with Pressley handed a three-year contract at the Ricoh Arena.

Pressley, a former City defender, will be thrown straight into the action as his new club travel to Scunthorpe on Saturday. He will be tasked with leading the Sky Blues into the play-offs, with the Midlands club currently seven points adrift of sixth spot with 10 league games remaining. At the moment they can be backed at 12/1 with Bet365 to win promotion back up to the Championship.

Pressley made 19 appearances for Coventry back in 1995 when they were in the Premier League. He went on to play over 100 games for Dundee United and nearly 300 for Hearts. In 2005 he was brifely joint caretaker boss for the Maroons, before venturing into management with Falkirk in 2010.
