We’re capable of turning it around tomorrow with the support of our fans, which is very important. I’m sure they are going to be behind us. It’s the only thing that we’re thinking about. It is going to be difficult, we’ve got a negative result against a good team but we’re capable of turning it around. We have to show that on the field.
