Hidalgo: “We’ll need to be patient in this game”

The SD Huesca coach spoke ahead of his side’s clash against Andorra, highlighting the difficulty of the opponent despite his team’s good moment

After two away matches, the Azulgranas come back to El Alcoraz for what Hidalgo described as an “extremely important” encounter they are willing and enthusiastic” about. This was emphasised by the boss in the pre-match press conference of matchday 30, where they will face FC Andorra at 20:30 CEST.

“We return home, against a direct rival who will make things difficult for us. We are still in the same situation and we have to continue doing things very well,” stated the coach. In this sense, he is clear that tomorrow "the rivals will demand a lot from us." And that’s basically why he bets on "knowing how to handle all moments, being prepared to suffer, and being patient."

Also, the Oscenses will have the support of the crowd. "We play in front of our crowd, and together we have to try our best to get the three points. It’s important that our people are with us, no matter what happens." And he added: “The team with the highest possession in the category comes here tomorrow. Therefore, we have to be ready to be patient enough to play this type of matches.”

However, his team arrives reinforced and with the confidence and morale that gives you having been unbeaten for six matches and not having conceded goals in five. “That gives you confidence and helps you believe in what you do, but a rival from our league is about to come, and so the gaps close quickly.”

Finally, he maintains the message so that nobody relaxes. “We must continue with the same tension and intensity because we haven’t achieved anything yet, our heads are prepared for any outcome, we know how to suffer and edge any rival. And tomorrow we will have to suffer, know how to find the moments, and be patient.”

After the last two away games, Hidalgo will seek to "confirm the results here at home and improve those numbers in our stadium” tomorrow.
