Sevilla vs Elche preview - Fajr warns against complacency

Posted Saturday, March 14, 2015 by PA

Elche's Faycal Fajr has warned against complacency against Sevilla after a 1-0 win over Almeria last week looked to have eased relegation fears.

A run of three wins in six games has left Elche three points clear of the relegation places, and Faisal think that if they can maintain the standard of that performance, they could guarantee their safety.

Speaking to the media before the game, Faisal was quoted on the club's website as saying: "Against Sevilla we play the same way as in the last game."

He added: "We can not relax though...we can reach until end of season with this form of play.

"People can see there is a group of great players who can achieve the goal.

"Let's (win at) Sevilla because we are confident and can score in all areas."

The midfielder's coach, Fran Escriba, added that his side were well prepared to face Sevilla, who have gained a reputation for being an uncompromising side to face.

Escriba told "We have worked to stop the Sevilla kicks in the air, or offensive actions."

The hosts will go in to the game on the back of an impressive 3-1 win over Villarreal in the Europa League on Thursday night, but the short turnaround means there are concerns over a couple of players.

Vitolo is one player who is struggling with a knock and could miss out, but manager Unai Emery will be keen to claim the three points which would move them closer to snatching a place in the top four.
