Waregem Coach : No chance, we`re out
Francky Drury, the Zulte-Waregem coach, wrote of his side`s chances ahead of the match tonight. Admitting he was proud, he urged his side not to disgrace themselves but confirmed that avoiding relegation was the main aim for the rest of the season. With Waregem currently in 12th place in the Jupiler League he also hinted at resting some of his key players for the game tonight ahead of the visit of Gent:
'It is the end of the road for us. One more round is not possible. This is the maximum. We have known for a few weeks or a few months that Newcastle are a good team, and we found that out at home. It is a very difficult game for us, but we must concentrate on the league and making sure we save ourselves in the league. We are not just here to enjoy the stadium and the crowd."
"We have dreamt of reaching the last 16, but I do not think it is going to happen. But I hope to leave Newcastle tomorrow night with a good feeling to send us into the next game in the league. Last Thursday, we ran and ran and ran and then on Sunday, my players were tired. The players were more or less crawling on the pitch. We will have played four games in 11 days and we have a group of 20 players. It is very difficult for us.'
