Escriba 'happy' despite 'some bitterness'

Fran Escriba was left with mixed feelings after his Elche side claimed a 2-2 draw with Real Valladolid.

The promoted side were 2-0 up, but a Hector Osario double gave the Pucela a share of the points.

The Coach though, was happy with a draw, but disappointed to have thrown away a two-goal lead.

“It’s a good point for us,” he told a Press conference.

“I’m taking the positive view overall, but I was left with some bitterness.

“It’s difficult playing Valladolid – they press you hard and make you work in possession.

“We knew we would have to fight until the last minute, so I’m happy to have done that and got a point.”
