Former Middlesbrough and West Brom boss Tony Mowbray set to be named as new Coventry boss

Coventry City are set to appoint former Middlesbrough and West Brom boss Tony Mowbray as their new manager following the sacking of Steven Pressley.

Pressley was sacked last week after seeing his side fall into the League One relegation zone after a poor run of results, and no win at the Ricoh Arena since October.

The club have since picked up four points from their last two games, beating promotion chasing MK Dons at the Ricoh on Saturday, under the caretaker charge of former Leeds boss Dave Hockaday and Neil MacFarlane.

Mowbray has not been involved in management since he was sacked by Middlesbrough in October 2013.

His first permanent managerial role came at Scottish side Hibernian in 2004, before spells at West Brom and Celtic, before taking charge of Middlesbrough, a club at which he spent the majority of his playing career.

Coventry are expected to unveil Mowbray this afternoon having called a press conference ahead of their match away at Barnsley this evening.
