Nelson: “It's a day to look down and focus on the shield on our chest”

The Malaguista centre-back spoke to the media after the defeat in Melilla. “We have to work much harder to achieve the objectives we want,” he stressed.

Analysis

“It hasn't been a good day for us. There is no choice but to continue working tomorrow to win the next game.”

Bad second half

“The coach is absolutely right. We had a good first half knowing the pitch we were going to find. We didn't want that second half. It's a day to look down and focus on the shield on our chest and know that we have to work much harder to achieve the objectives we want.”

Melilla’s strength

“In the second half we played the game that the rival wanted, with contact and second ball. We aren’t very strong there, whereas they are. We knew that Melilla wanted a set piece or a transition, and we conceded the goal like that.”

State of the pitch

“It's no excuse, we knew what we’d be up against. If we don't want to play on this grass then we have to move up. It’s a shame for this category, but it’s the same for Melilla and for everyone.”

Next challenge

“We have to focus on the match against Recreativo de Huelva, it’s one of the most difficult we are going to play. We have to win, take each game at a time because just concentrating on May won’t help us.”
