Anquela: Finally, some luck!

Juan Antonio Anquela admitted that his Granada side were fortunate to draw with Getafe, but that it was a luck earned and overdue.

The struggling outfit picked up a 2-2 result at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez on Monday evening, thanks to two contentious penalty decisions that went in their favour.

“I leave with the very sweet taste of a point. For us, it is an important point to pick up,” Anquela reflected at full-time.

“During the break we saw that the team was not on the right track and in the second half the team has been good, but Getafe killed us on the counterattack.

“At half-time we spoke about the first half and were quite upset as the team did not have the necessary charge and energy. We risked things in the second half, we made some chances and we have improved. Finally, we have been fortunate, which I have been asking for for a long time.

“This is a point for faith, as the team fought to the last second. We have been fortunate with the first penalty goal as we had not done anything up until then, and we have had that luck which has dodged us in the other weeks. Each point should be celebrated.

“My team is prepared to suffer and adapt to the situation, which is going to be tough going forward, because nobody wins easy in La Liga, except for a couple of teams.”
