Crotone attacks bottom player Monterosi: beware of making mistakes. Probable lineups


By John

Zauli’s Crotone returns to the field at the “Scida” against bottom side Monterosi. «The opponent will arrive to play his cards for salvation and we for our objective – declares Zauli -. I always tell the boys that a team’s first opponent is itself, so we have to think about playing to the maximum of our potential and the result will certainly come as a consequence, because I believe that Crotone can win many matches in this championship: but we have to enter on the pitch as a real team, with the intention of playing a great match.”
The rossoblù coach, however, has to deal with the many injured players: D’Errico, Vitale, Gigliotti and Lucano. «Gigliotti will still be out for this match – he explains -. Papini recently returned, he will be part of the match. During the week we had a small problem with Guido Gomez, and Vinicius had a calf problem after the match against Brindisi. When it comes to a muscular problem it’s nothing serious, both for him and for Gomez we will evaluate it close to the match.”

The Cup match against Brindisi confirmed that we can rely on many “second lines” who have proven to be reliable. In addition to Giron, Spaltro and Pannitteri also performed well: «I always have difficulties – clarifies the coach –, I have 20 boys who live to play those 90 minutes. Giron, Spaltro, Pannitteri, those who were called into play played a good game, and I want to make everyone feel like they are starters. There will also be the chance to see those players who did well for Brindisi on the pitch, it doesn’t matter whether it will be at the start of the match or during the match. We want to be among the first and to get there we must always be ready.”
