Francisco banking on home form

Francisco believes that if his Almeria side can win all their home games between now and the end of the season they will avoid relegation.

Almeria host Osasuna tonight and both are currently in the bottom three and level on points.

Francisco’s side are place above the visitors and level on points with Osasuna and Real Valladolid, who are 17th.

But the Coach added at his pre-match Press conference that Almeria need to get the game against Osasuna off to a strong start, unlike their previous outings.

“We’ve tried to visualise these errors at the start of the game. They’ve been more for a lack of firepower than lack of focus or commitment. It happened the same way against Valladolid,” Francisco said.

“We have prepared for this and we have worked for it.

“We had a very bad game against Sevilla but we must be optimistic and trust in ourselves and our work.

“That is what has allowed us to stay in this difficult division.”
