Pressman's signing was necessary to provide cover for first-choice goalie Neil Sullivan, following the departure of Scott Carson to Liverpool
Pressman spent 19 years at Sheff Wedneday (Nov 1985 to July 2004), making 480 appearances. In the close season he made a move to Leicester City where he made 15 appearances but like, Rob Hulse, fell foul of a new manager coming in - this time it was Craig Levein who made it clear there was no place for Kevin at the Foxes. This must have been a surprise to Pressman as he was only on the losing side three times in 15 games! This was in a side performing so badly the manager had resigned!
Kevin has clearly proved that he is more than capable of appearing for Leeds should anything untoward befall Sullivan. Recently Blackwell has dispensed with a keeper on the subs bench in order to provide himself with more outfield options so the signing of a full-time cover goalie is less important than before. Kevin is on a non-contract basis as Bates and Blackwell keep a tight grip on Leeds United's meagre resources.
Updated: 24th March - Pressman moves to Coventry, Blackwell brings in Sasa Ilic as cover for Sullivan.
