Mendilibar: We have to fight now

Osasuna boss Jose Luis Mendilibar has admitted that his side have been dragged back into a relegation dogfight after defeat to Granada.

The Rojillos lost 3-0 to El Grana on Saturday, slipping down to 16th place, sitting just four points above Deportivo in 18th.

And the Coach has claimed that they have a testing week ahead of them now before playing Sevilla next weekend.

“The three points takes Granada nearer to the target they set themselves,” he told a Press conference.

“But for us, we're going to have to fight and wait for the results to come through on Monday.

“What worries me is that we'll have to lift the spirits of the players ahead of next week.

“But safety is still in our hands.”
