After the 1-1 draw with Virtus Francavilla, coach Lucarelli answered the journalists' questions: “Di Carmine? Yesterday morning he felt a pull on his adductor, where he had had a problem, he is carrying out instrumental tests. He wasn't fit to play and I brought him for the honor of signing, I didn't want to give the opponents a psychological advantage; the boy had also given me his availability, he had gone to warm up but came back, it might not be a serious problem and this comforts us. We must be more "golliferous", even with the wingers and the attacking midfielder, we created a lot but were poorly accompanied, we did not attack the goal with the necessary malice. When you create so much you have to score more, I thought we would have struggled more but it was a single-issue match, it went worse than expected and it could have been the classic banana peel. We tried hard, I can't blame the boys for anything and in fact I thank them, it wasn't a given to play three high intensity games. I would like a more practical team, Juve Stabia also won today with a place and defended the result, in this group it is important. Performance of the defenders? I rate him well, Artistico scored a great goal, as a true centre-forward, he's an interesting boy. Chiarella? He had four days of fever and is a bit debilitated, he hasn't been able to work like the others. Dubickas did what he could do, I liked our movement of the ball and the change of play to open up such a dense defence, even the final attack was well thought out, the boys remained physically and mentally sharp, we had continuity of play and opportunities and paradoxically we weren't able to win in our best game. As it was, having remedied it was another good sign, in the only situation created by the opponents we conceded the goal but we always remained in the game; it's a huge performance. We must not start again but continue, in the first two matches we were concrete, in the last two we created more opportunities, it means that we are on the right path, I expect growth in terms of finishing. Messina? Modica usually looks for the game, if they did something different it would surprise me but it would mean that we are feared, we will have another type of match with other characteristics and difficulties, it will be a heartfelt match and we must demonstrate our mental continuity, which I am liking: Catania goes down, reacts and doesn't get lost, doesn't get caught up in panic or anxiety."
