Lazo: ‘We’re going to go all out for a win, but we also need our fans’ support’

The left-winger recognises that UD Almeria vs SD Ponferradina will be a tough game, although he is pretty sure that ‘the best version of ourselves will be seen’

If UD Almeria can play well every week left until the end of the season, then they are definitely going places.‘We’re going to go all out for a win over SD Ponferradina, but we also need our fans’ support, who can give us that extra bit to get us over the finishing line,’ stressed left-winger José Carlos Lazo when giving his pre-match thoughts. 

The Cadiz native footballer recognised ‘we have a vital week in the tight race for automatic promotion ahead because then we’ll be visiting Real Valladolid CF on Saturday, but now the most important thing is the match against SD Ponferradina. It's all we think about at the moment.’

Lazo acknowledges that their rivals will make things very complicated since there is also a lot at stake, although as he pointed out ‘at this point in the competition and in this tier, you never know how each match will end. What is certain is that it’ll be tough and fiercely contested for sure, but we want to win again at home and I’m sure that the best version of ourselves will be seen.’

On a side note, the 26-year-old attacker explained ‘our opponents park the bus and don't give us many options to score, although we’ve got quality and potential up front. I’m convinced that we’ll create big chances.’

Lazo considers that the unwavering support of the fans is fundamental and said ‘for us, it’s essential, we really need it, they have to be with us. They always make us very welcome every time we arrive at the Stadium, it lifts my spirits and motivates me so much...’

UD Almería will be the last team to complete a Matchday yet again [Matchday 35] after knowing the results of their most direct rivals and the player stated ‘we have to focus on ourselves and avoid looking at the table because although it’s true that it’s better for us that they don’t pick up points, if UD Almería win games, we won’t have to look at anyone’s results.’
