Hidalgo: “This is an everyday fight”

SD Huesca coach spoke ahead of his side’s encounter against Leganes, warning about the difficulty of the game. “We take on the best side in the competition”

The Azulgranas face the leader at El Alcoraz this Sunday, and Hidalgo does not change his message a bit. He keeps asking them to concentrate and focus on their objective: sealing a victory to take an important step forward. About their rival, he tells us: “We know about their potential - we take on the best side in the competition.” “They dominate different registers, concede little and are very solid and talented. It’s difficult to hurt them. We’ll have to work extremely hard,” he added. Therefore, he asks his men to “be alert”. “We’ll go out there convinced that we can do a bunch of things well, that we can edge them and make the most of our options. We need to pay full attention and face this game with passion and hunger,” he stated.

Sunday’s match will meet two of the most solid sides in the competition, so Hidalgo expects “an even game, as usual, which will be decided by details.” “We’ll need to take advantage of our strengths, be hungry and know how to suffer.” Besides, the Oscenses will have their fans at El Alcoraz behind them: “When we play in front of our people, it’s important to give them a victory and make them enjoy so that they push us. It’s a beautiful bond. We need to know how much we've worked to get us here."

Approaching the final games of the competition, Hidalgo confesses: “The more calm and focused we are, the better. We still have a long way to go, we need to be humble and pay attention – we must maintain tension and passion.”
