Former Coventry City manager Steven Pressley says Coventry City fans have truly earned their "day in the sun" ahead of Sunday's EFL Trophy final.

Despite the looming threat of relegation, supporters can cast the worry to the back of their minds when they take on Oxford United for a chance to win their first silverware in almost 30 years.

Pressley, who managed the club from 2013 to 2015, and enjoyed a spell as a player from 1994-95 says their support is second to none.
