Ziganda: “Our crowd’s support will be key” The Azulgranas’ boss expects “tough fiercely contested”

Levante test for SD Huesca, and he is confident in the fans’ power at El Alcoraz

“We’ve got an extremely difficult test tomorrow. I expect a “tough fiercely contested encounter.” Ziganda is clear about the game his men will encounter tomorrow and the tough ask it is against a Levante side who have not lost for 20 games. “Their figures are not random. They can handle many different scenarios, with top-quality players. They completely control proceedings,” told us the boss ahead of his ahead of his side's clash with Levante at a full El Alcoraz tomorrow (18:30 GMT+1 kick-off).

“Levante have wonderful offensive capabilities. The teams in the five top spots in the table have outplayed the others. You can tell they’re different – and Levante is one of them. If you remain 20 games unbeaten, then you’ve got things right, you deserve to be up there,” added Ziganda.

We’ll be met with a monumental hurdle then, so I hope there will be a great atmosphere to push us to make the most at home,he pursued. “We must find our essence, be rock-solid in defence. If we fail to focus, they’ll be ready to hurt us. We need to put in a solid performance.”

A fantastic atmosphere will definitely be created tomorrow at El Alcoraz, so Ziganda appeals for the support on our people: “We have to put up a fight and we need our crowd well behind us. It’s going to be vital; we know how much that boosts us – our home results are not a coincidence.”
