‘Draws worthless to Villarreal’

Fran Escriba says draws “aren’t worth anything” to Villarreal ahead of Sunday’s match against Osasuna as they “must always go out to win”.

Villarreal are on a roll, having followed up back-to-back La Liga wins with an equally-creditable draw at Real Madrid midweek, and Escriba is feeling confident about the trip to Pamplona.

“We must control the euphoria. We need a calm victory,” the Coach said at a Press conference.

“We come from a series of good results, but we must remain calm like when things weren’t going well.

“At dressing-room level, I’m calm because the team have their heads in the game against Osasuna and are prepared.

“Our goal is to stay in the upper echelons of ​​the table, and for this we have to fight a complicated battle, with suffering in every game.

“We must always go out to win because draws aren’t worth anything to us.

“We need a perfect performance at home, and I’ll always play the XI that I think is best for each match.

“I’ll only rotate if I think a player is tired and can’t give his best.”
