Coach's interview in the Heliodoro.

Antonio Tapia was interviewed in his usual press conference this Thursday before the game against Xerez tomorrow. He started admitting that “we are here preoccupied with what might happen. No one is going to let go, there is tension and a need to win. We need to be strong and we need the help of the fans. We hope the team will play a good game and that they will deserve a victory”.
When asked about the next rival, the coach signalled that “Xerez has quality players, ones who are experienced at this level who will give us nothing. We need to make sure we show our best performance. We want to do things right and up the level of our game”.
When the game in Balaidos was brought up, Antonio Tapia recognised that “we need to try and finish games when they are in our favour, both in style and in results. In Vigo we gave everything but it didn't help because a point escaped that we had almost achieved. We are professionals and looking back I think we played a good game against a strong rival”.
Tapia also talked about playing on Friday “The times are not the ones we are used to, but from the point of view of the players recovery this is the best. There is a margin for this, for players to recover. We need to look positively as we have days spare”.
To finish the CD Tenerife trainer alluded to the “home advantage”. “Here in the Heliodoro, we can't afford to step back. We need to be consistent at home”, he concluded.
