Alcoraz holds the key to hope for SD Huesca

The great desire of SD Huesca, on which to build the hope of a happy end to the season, refers to the performance in El Alcoraz and the need to finally turn it into a sure thing to cling to and string together victories. The two against Mirandés (4-0) and Lugo (1-0) open up the possibility of a third coming this Saturday against UD Las Palmas (4:00 p.m., Movistar LaLiga) to further confirm the change in trend. A Barça team that has become more reliable at home than away from home also needs to repeat its idyll with the stadium, very common and a key aspect in previous seasons in the silver category.

Six more games await those of Xisco Muñoz in El Alcoraz. After UD Las Palmas, Burgos will attend, with a confirmed schedule on Friday, March 18 at 9:00 p.m.; Almería, Real Zaragoza, Sporting de Gijón and Real Sociedad B. There the options of climbing positions towards the ‘play off’ can be settled or, on the contrary, finish evaporating this possibility. You don’t have to go far back to remember the strongest Huesca as a local. In the season of the previous promotion, 19-20, he enjoyed good streaks: he added three wins in a row against Elche, Oviedo and Ponferradina between days 13 and 17; four against Real Zaragoza, Tenerife, Lugo and Almería between 21 and 28 and in the last three duels of the championship with Las Palmas, Alcorcón and Numancia.

To try to reissue these numbers, the azulgranas work, who this Thursday have trained at the IES Pirámide with the presence of Jorge Pulido. The center-back faces the final part of his recovery and has stepped onto the pitch to participate with his teammates in the physical tasks and with the ball entrusted by the coaching staff. While his contest on Saturday may be rushed, he had already worked out and touched the ball in the post-loss session in Ibiza. If the Barça coach considers it so, he can include him for the first time in the call after the fiber rupture that he suffered in the defeat of Mirandés and that has made him miss the appointments with Oviedo, Lugo and Ibiza.

Before training, Dani Escriche referred to thinking positive: “It’s not a final, but as if it were. We’re tired of opportunities to get ahead and we’re going with everything”. The one from Burriana will be available again after completing a suspension match and understands that “We go to every game to try to win, sometimes they run away because of nonsense and things that happen and it makes you very angry. There are many games and points at stake and we are going to give everything in this part of the season. We ask the fans to be with us because without them it is not easy. We’re going to give it our all.”

In this continuous step forward and backward that is being the current season, Escriche is aware that regularity is urgent. “This weekend if we get the three points we’ll hit the table and get back into the fight. If the fans are with us, we will try to respond with the three points”. In reference to the improvement at home and the slowdown away from home, the striker understands that “they are dynamic. We notice the fans much closer and away it is costing us more”.

Personally, he is “pretty good” in terms of mood and sports. He is also “comfortable” with his teammates and with the newcomer Darío Poveda, with whom he gets on well: “Having a reference above gives me life. With whom to combine and not be so alone”. The canaries are the ones who deposit the interest of the azulgranas, above a classification with which they do not want to be obsessed: “It’s not a final but we’re going to fight as if it were. It’s a great team, especially on the offensive line.” In search of a good streak, the man from Burriana breathes the “confidence and tranquility” that the coach transmits to them.
