Real Oviedo defender Dani Calvo appeared in the Press Room this morning, talking to the gathered members of the media at El Requexón. Friday's victory against Elche CF was a statement win for the club, and the centre back admitted that had been the case. "All of the points are worth the same, but given where we are in the table and the opponent it was a statement. It's a very important victory because it moved us into a playoff place."
"We are happy with the team's form. The run has been good and we are moving upwards. We are hungry and excited, and we have a unique opportunity in front of us."
Los Azules are up against CD Mirandés at home next time out, where only three points will be enough. "We are playing at home and if we want to go up then we have to win this type of match. We are going to try it, and we are going to do it."
Asked about the possibility of automatic promotion, Dani Calvo concluded that "the table says it all. If we were seven or eight points off then no, but we are only three points off with 24 still in play. We are going to fight to the death for it. Experience tells me that we have to stay very calm. Teams that get nervous are the ones that drop away. There is no other option but to maintain this run."
