Mentality key for JIM

Juan Ignacio Martinez believes if Real Valladolid are to stay up this season, they need to believe in themselves.

La Liga’s second bottom side travel to Anoeta tonight to play Real Sociedad but are only two points away from safety.

Martinez told his pre-match Press conference that the difference between survival and relegation will come down to mental strength.

“In the end the teams who are mentally strongest and make the least mistakes are the ones who survive,” he told reporters.

“In the final 10 games the only things that matter are results and how we perform.

“We were very annoyed after drawing with Rayo Vallecano but we’re feeling better now. We have a lot to gain at Anoeta.

“We’re going there with the intention of getting the points.”
