We will exert ourselves to the utmost to win the match-Team Manager Petrovic  

Comment from Team Manager Petrovic the day before the J. League 16th Sec match against Shimizu S-Pulse

We will play two consecutive home matches from tomorrow against Shimizu S-Pulse and Avispa Fukuoka. We can not lose these two matches in order for us to move up in the J. League standing. I regard them extremely important matches. By winning the match tomorrow, we will be able to feel confident about ourselves and this will help us be placed even higher in the ranking.
Based on my past experience, as every team is level pegging in the J. League, there is a real good chance to win against any team. I feel it is necessary for us to exert ourselves to the utmost to win the match regardless of the team we are playing against, be it Avispa Fukuoka or Nagoya Grampus or Vissel Kobe. If we will be able to fight as we did during the previous match against Sanfrecce Hiroshima, we will definitely be heading in the right direction. All we need is to make the most of the opportunities we create.
