Xerez DFC faces Conil this Wednesday in Chapin. David Sánchez, Azulino coach, spoke in the preview and acknowledged being “a little bit annoyed” after the defeat in Cartaya “because we knew the difficulty of finishing in first position, but after the start of the competition we had we would have liked to have it until the final because the boys have done a great job and we all deserved it, both them and the fans. Then there is another reading, we did not deserve to lose in Cartaya, we had a mistake and they made a mistake and we had chances and the best player on their team was the goalkeeper, he made two or three interventions of a very high level. We didn’t have our best day, but we did things to win the game or at least tie it. And now to think about Conil, a few days have passed, we face a very tough team defensively, with fast and strong people, it is going to be a difficult game because we all have a lot at stake and we have to do things very well. It’s going to cost a lot. The teams fight to score and win and have options for salvation or playoff. “You have to be patient and be mentally well, we are facing an opponent that has improved with the new coach, they are close to relegation and there is a lot at stake.”

The surprising results that are being seen “happen everywhere. In the first round Ciudad de Lucena and Xerez CD did good numbers and the second round that we are doing is not normal either. We are all there, each one fighting with his own thing. We are looking forward to the game and for it to be us. Try to mathematically achieve the playoff. We have to go game by game. We left Cartaya upset for not being able to maintain the hope of first place until the end.”

The coach does not believe that the situation will affect the squad: “When the game ended they were upset because they knew it was an important week and we knew the results and knowing that it was almost impossible, we have always had that hope. We have tried to hide it, but we have always had it. The playoff already looked difficult, there is the good work that the boys have done in the second round. The faces I see are of desire and enthusiasm, we are strong and we know what the path is. It doesn’t surprise me, because everyone is playing it now. We have to be focused and prepared because we are going to find a strong opponent who will try to create danger for us on the counterattack.”

has now entered a three-game week, a situation that the Sevillian has not thought about. He explained that “when they are things that do not depend on me, I don’t give them much thought. It’s what we have. What depends on me are the cuts we have seen from Cartaya, Conil, the atmosphere, the training sessions or the locker room. It may be that this game could have been played much earlier, but that’s what we have to do. We lost three important players in Cartaya and they had many games with four yellow cards. It’s what we have, we have adapted and we have not made excuses. Let’s think about the team, this is hard. Of 18 teams there is one leader, the other four are playing in the playoffs and fighting for it. I have played several playoffs and they are tough. “We have to finish well with points and sensations.”

Given the results of the team now, when asked if it’s annoying that we couldn’t take advantage at the beginning of the season, he said that “in the last two months people have told me that, but it’s not worth thinking about that, we’ve had our deficit and our virtues and luckily the latter have taken precedence. The priority objective was the playoffs and, if we are lucky, we will achieve it, I already said that we did not have a team to be champion, the boys have shown that we could have been champions if we had maintained that consistency, another team will be and We will try to mathematically get to the playoffs, if it can be this Wednesday better. From there, prepare for the last two games and the playoff, which will be tough and often not fair. It’s . I am proud of my players because they have overcome a situation in a difficult context. I have complete confidence in them and my coaching staff. “We have taken a step forward and we have known how to mature and we are on the path.”
