Espanyol’s Alex Fernandez admits his side are currently going through an uncomfortable period, having only picked up one point in five matches.
The Barcelona outfit were beaten again at the weekend, losing 2-1 at home to relegation strugglers Almeria.
However, the player also thinks the Blanquiazul’s recent woes should not be blown out of proportion and has backed his teammates to come through their dip in form.
“This team always goes out onto the pitch to win,” Fernandez said to journalists today.
“We need to approach our next match [against Valladolid] with a high intensity. We need to think of it as a final and work to make sure we at least get a point.
“We need to rediscover our will to win and our intensity. I’m sure it will come good.
“I hope the supporters stay calm. We don’t think we are in a terrible situation, just an uncomfortable one.
“Because we see the work we do every day, we know our work will be rewarded in the end.”
