Coventry City manager Tony Mowbray says his side need to improve their record on the road if they are to maintain their promotion push in League One.

The fifth-placed Sky Blues remain unbeaten at home this term but have lost three times away from the Ricoh.

"We realise how important points are to stay at the right end of the table," he told BBC Coventry and Warwickshire.

Coventry face Fleetwood on Saturday, who appointed former Sky Blues boss Steven Pressley as manager this week.

"We feel that in recent away games we haven't really got what we deserved and things transpired against us," Mowbray added.

"We have to keep searching for the way to get results away from home as we can't rely on winning at home every week.

"Somewhere along the line we'll hit a blip at home and we need to find the way to win away to keep our form going."

Ahead of facing the former Coventry manager at Highbury, Mowbray said he respects the new Cod Army boss.

"It's one of those quirky things that happens in football and it adds a bit of spice. I wish Steven the very best, I only have good thoughts for him."
