Steven Pressley returns to the managerial arena with Fleetwood Townby Jack Kitson / 06 October 2015, 16:40Tweet
Pressley has returned to the dugout after bagging the Fleetwood Town job. The 41-year-old, who turned down the chance to manageÂ Dundee United last week, had been out-of-work since losing his job at Coventry City back in February, but is now raring to go in his new position at Highbury Stadium.
Pressley, a former Scotland defender, takes over from the sacked Graham Alexander, who was sent packing last month following a disastrous 5-1 defeat to Gillingham.

Pressley certainly has his work cut out, inheriting a struggling side who have endured a woeful start to the season, with the 23rd-placed League One outfit scraping together just nine points from 11 games this term.
Pressley will bid to halt the Cod Army's four match league losing streak when he takes charge of his new troops on Saturday, which is coincidentally against former club Coventry. In the meantime Fleetwood are in action tonight (Tuesday) against Shrewsbury in the Johnstone's Paint trophy.
