Lassad still as the main doubt ahead of the clash against Recreativo, the Tunisian striker didn’t train on Thursday and Lotina will check until today’s session if he’s fit enough. At the same time, Piscu and Manuel Pablo are ready to play.

Lotina doesn’t know yet if Lassad Nouioui will be able to start the game against Recreativo Huelva, the striker hasn’t trained during the week due to a muscular contracture and it isn’t know yet if he will be fit for Sunday’s clash. Lassad has been a starter alongside Bodipo during the last two liga matches and even scored the winning goal against Valladolid.

Therefore, Lotina will define until today’s session if he is going to repeat the same 4-4-2 lineup that has performed in the last two liga encounters. At least Manuel Pablo has surpassed the adductor problem that kept sidelined from Wednesday’s training. Also Piscu is fit to play after surpassing his ankle sprain, the Galician central defender has missed the last two games due to this reason.

Meanwhile, Central defender Z?© Castro talked to reporters at the press room, he was saying that Depor’s squad is not afraid to meet a full stadium as it is expected at the Nuevo Colombino, â€?I prefer to play in full fields, though it is against the opposite fans, rather that with few people at the stadium. Right now they still have chances of staying at Primera and surely they will do anything possible until the end of la liga. After winning at Pamplona against Osasuna, they have a high morale, but so we do.â€?

The Portuguese central defender also believes that a victory will be important for Deportivo taking in mind the matches of Depor’s direct rivals, �If we win, surely it will be a positive matchday because Villarreal and Valencia have complicate matches and the objective will be closer.�

At Recreativo, Javier Camu?±as is not fit enough to face Deportivo due to a hamstring problem, but coach Lucas Alcaraz will risk and will allow his participation in the game against Depor, this since the confrontation is considered as a final for Recre. The Andalusian team trained on Thursday behind closed doors and Camu?±as just completed part of the session as the doctors are taking precaution measures with him. Who is already discarded for the match is Marco Ruben (stress fracture), doctors expect the Argentine striker will fit for the next match against Numancia.
