Pressley: We've brought McQuoid in as a striker

Coventry City manager Steve Pressley intends to utilise Josh McQuoid as a striker during his half season loan with the club.

The Cherries attacker joined up with AFC Bournemouth team mates Ryan Allsop and Mohamed Coulibaly this week as the two clubs agreed a third loan deal following the sale of Callum Wilson to the Cherries.

The trio have all agreed loan deals until January, with both Coulibaly and McQuoid entering their final year at Dean Court.

McQuoid has been given the Coventry City number 9 shirt despite only being a loan signing and Pressley intends to play McQuoid as a striker going into the new League One season.

Coventry City manager Steve Pressley told the Coventry Telegraph...

"We`ve brought him in as a striker. That`s his preference and that was one of the questions he had when we spoke to him because when he went to Peterborough on loan last season he was mostly used as a midfielder.

"He`s a really good footballer and because of that people see him as a versatile player. I`ll spend the week deciding on the best blend in the midfield/striking area, but we want to utilise Josh up front."

McQuoid added...

'...I`m here to help the team and do what I can do. If you work together and work for each other then success is easier to achieve - hopefully my experience can help the club achieve success."
