Francisco Rodríguez came to Montilivi a little over a week ago, a short time, but enough to see that under his orders the team is competitive, aggressive, ambitious and that he is prepared to face the challenge of promoting to the First Division.
Three games and a pretty big makeover is what the Girona to really show that he is one of the great contenders for promotion to First Division right now. With Francisco On the bench, the Gerundians have added seven points out of nine possible, with two wins at home 1-0 against Saragossa and Almeria and with a zero tie against the Sporting in El Molinón.
In a moment where adding is always so complicated, these numbers have allowed the Catalan team to take hold of fifth place and be within range of fourth, which has one point and third, three. The direct promotion, which marks Huesca with 64 points, five more than the Girona, It is a utopia, so the objective is none other than to ensure the playoff as soon as possible and prepare it in the best possible way. The results of this week together with the vital victory of this Thursday have placed the Girona a with 59 points, four more than the seventh ranked, the Elche.

An image that gives guarantees
Three games and no goal conceded. This is one of the best data that Francisco’s arrival on the bench of the Girona. Defensive solidity and avoiding at all costs the many silly mistakes that had cost the Catalans so many points. This, along with ambition, aggressiveness and intensity have given the team another air, which in the three matches against major teams has been superior to its rival. The only negative point is in attack. Two goals and both achieved from penalties are a poor baggage for a team with so much offensive potential. Up to three quarters of the field the circulation and rhythm are excellent, but beyond Samu Saiz is finding itself alone in the face of poor performance Aday, Borja or even Stuani, who is not going through his best moment. However, there are still two weeks for the dispute of the playoff And this is the aspect that the team should improve the most, something of which Francisco is fully aware.
