Aguirre targets 42 points

Espanyol Coach Javier Aguirre has insisted tomorrow’s game at home to Deportivo La Coruna isn’t decisive.

Even after Sunday’s impressive 2-2 draw away to Real Madrid Los Pericos are still mired in the relegation zone, ahead of Depor on goal difference alone. However ahead of the Estadio Cornella-El Prat clash the Mexican – who has drawn his first three games in charge – is stressing that the result won’t alter his team’s approach.

“I will be happy when we have 42 points,” Aguirre commented at a Press conference today. “Now we have to add to our tally and break the impasse, that is our mission.

“The team is entitled to be happy about last weekend but the work does not end with what we did at the Bernabeu, we must move forward and play better.

“If we win tomorrow we will be pleased with the result, if we draw we’ll have to see how the game went and if we lose, we’ll keep working.”

The former Atletico Madrid trainer also confirmed that Sergio Garcia is in line to start as a ‘false nine’ once again.
