Yerai Martin: "If we play in Valencia as we do at Ipurua, we will be very close to taking points"

The coach of the women's first team believes that winning in Valencia would be "a very big statement" for the rest of the season

Yerai Martin is keen and prepared to travel to Valencia this weekend. In the press conference prior to Saturday's match, the coach has put the results of the second half of the season on the table as proof of the good work his team has been doing and that they can do it again in the remaining fixtures.

The women's first team comes from losing their last derby of the season in Ipurua against Athletic Club, but "after a day of mourning we are already starting to prepare for the next game, a very important match against Valencia CF, which is a direct rival that also has the same points as us". 

"If we can transfer the work we have been doing in recent matches at Ipurua to Valencia, we will be very close to taking points", explained Yerai Martin. Although the coach is aware that, nowadays, it is important for any team to gather points, Valencia CF has the same needs as the Armeros. He sees the rival as "a team with players of great individual quality, such as striker Anita Marcos", so "we must do a good job defensively and try to take our chances".

"We will have to focus on our game strategy, which we have been doing very well, continue on that path and take it to Valencia on Saturday," he said. Winning in Valencia would be "a very big statement" for the final stretch of the season for Yerai Martin's team, who travel with great confidence on Friday to Valencia for Saturday's game.
