Jemez ‘convinced’ Rayo will survive

Paco Jemez has spoken of his confidence that Rayo Vallecano will avoid relegation after the win over Valencia.

Joaquin Larrivey scored the only goal of the game and while Rayo remain in the bottom three, they are only three points from safety.

“I believe in facts,” Jemez told his post-match Press conference.

“The team is feeling good. I’m convinced we’ll get out of the bottom three, although it will be difficult.

“But the feelings in my team are positive.

“I feel we can continue to progress and we’ll have to put ourselves in difficult positions.

“No match is definitive but each one is more important than the last.

“If we lost [to Valencia] it would have been more complicated. The win makes us happy, closes the gap on our rivals and puts more pressure on them.”
