After six consecutive knockouts the neroverdi look for points with Pisa: salvation today is a mirage but it is too early to give up
PORDENONE. From Pisa to Pisa. The management of Bruno Tedino at the helm of Pordenone is completed today. His umpteenth adventure at the Neroverde helm began at the Garibaldi Arena on October 24th with a draw won at the last minute.
Thanks to a goal by Folorunsho, now passed to Reggina, at the last of the six minutes of recovery. A draw, then, of great hope. Because Pordenone was preparing to face that transfer to the field of the leaders in the uncomfortable guise of sacrificial victim. Instead, as mentioned, it did not go like this at all. And the 1-1 goal was the right reward for a strong and courageous match.
Today at Teghil the fields are reversed and both teams find themselves very different from what they were. Pisa, to begin with, is no longer in command, but pursues, although only three points from the top, currently occupied by Lecce. Despite an important January transfer market, in line with the declared desire to land in Serie A, only two victories have come in the last nine games. On the other hand, Pordenone reaches this challenge weakened in spirit and morale by a streak of six consecutive defeats.
The hope we were talking about, fueled by the draw in Pisa, has therefore faded over time. Although the Tedino management has been able to keep it on at least until the beginning of the terrible month of February, which began with the housewife joke with Spal and continued with the black series that today the lizards will try to break. Also because it is beyond any reasoning in the standings (the play-outs are eleven points away), there is the pride of a city and a supporter, who did not miss his contribution even in the recent and long trip to Terni. , to be honored.
«Time passes and we are unable to fill the gap that divides us from the others – admits Tedino -, but the fact remains that we will try again. Difficult, in truth, to do better than the first half with Ternana. But we can certainly improve what we saw after their goal. The team should be encouraged. A positive result would give us confidence ». Absent the suspended Mensah, Stefani, Gavazzi, Sabbione and Iacoponi, Tedino could hand over the keys of the midfield to Torrasi. In defense Barison returns in place of Bassoli. Doubt behind also for Pisa. With the central Caracciolo, not at his best, who could be replaced by De Vitis.
On the eve of the match, words inspired by the utmost prudence were those of Luca D’Angelo, the coach of the Tuscans: «Pordenone has already made Cremonese and Lecce suffer. It is by no means a team to be underestimated ».
