Pressure Is On Southampton - McSheffrey

Last updated : 27 April 2012 By Covsupport News Service

Coventry City's Gary McSheffrey has said that the pressure is on Southampton tomorrow not City.

Speaking to Sky Blue Player, McSheffrey said:  "In our previous games against Southampton, I think we've played quite well. We got back level with them in the first game and gave them a real contest.

"In the cup game, we should have been three or four nil up at half-time but we couldn't do it and let in two poor second-half goals.

"Don't get me wrong. They're a very good side where everybody knows what they are doing so it will be tough for us.

"But I think they will be a little bit nervous as they know we have done quite well against them and given as good as we've got. Obviously, they need the result as well so everything is on them.

"I think the pressure is now off us because our fate has already been decided. We can now go out there and just enjoy the occasion and try and some pride back into the football club.

"There will definitely be a weight off some of the lads' shoulders as the importance of the previous results was huge and that was tough.

"On a personal note, I was going into the games fine but some people deal with it a bit differently and the tension of some games might have been a bit too much for some people.

"I think that will change and if we can put in a good performance, we can go into the summer holidays with a bit of pride."
