As announced by Hercules, the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) decided to move the party «to a new date as close as possible in the time to be determined by this body as soon as all the circumstances that allow its dispute are proven.
Hercules, who came to this match at an optimal moment of the season after beating Badalona and Cornellà, wished a “speedy recovery to the players of the UE Llagostera” in its official statement. The Catalan team confirmed the two positives last Friday, so the squad has been confined waiting for the Ok to return to training. According to the Llagostera note, the two positives “are in optimal health conditions.” His match last week was also postponed due to positives in La Nucía, a match that will be played next Wednesday at the Camilo Cano nuciero.
This is the second time this season that Hercules has been forced to postpone a match due to covid infections. The previous occasion was on the first day and on the occasion of the visit to Alcoyano, although on that occasion the positives were players from the Alicante team.
The blue and white team is confident that this new break will not stop the excellent dynamics they had in their tracks.
The match against Llagostera has been set, although not officially, for the Wednesday, May 5, compressing the Hercules calendar, which will have to play three games in just eight days In which a good part of their chances of reaching a place among the first two to access the Pro League will be played. Thus, Manolo Díaz’s team will have the visit of Lleida in the Pérez on May 1. The following Wednesday he will play against Llagostera also in the blue and white stadium and the weekend he will travel to Badalona. A tight schedule and a break that stops the positive dynamics of a team full of morale.
What is unknown is how this break in which the club does not plan to play any friendlies to avoid untimely injuries at this point can affect the squad. The last stops that the team had were not beneficial. The last one was after the victory against Ibiza. The team was charged with morale after Benja’s goal at Rico Pérez and then the break gave rise to the momentous defeat against Villarreal B that began to move Hercules away from one of the three places that classified the Pro League. The Christmas break did not bring positive news either for the Alicante team, which hopes to return with the same dynamics of the last games.
The only positive thing about having to stop this weekend is that Hercules will recover troops ahead of the match against Lleida. Moisés and Erice will be available for the next meeting and only Darren Sidoel will continue to recover. It will be the first time in a long time that practically the entire squad is available after a stormy season in the injured section.
Enrique Ortiz meets with Unidad Herculana
Representatives of Herculana Unit met on Tuesday morning with Enrique Ortiz in the offices of Rico Pérez. It was a meeting agreed for a long time requested by the supporters of Alicante, who wanted to ask the maximum shareholder about their future plans in the structure of the entity as well as the consequences that a possible descent to the fourth category would bring. The question remained in the air again about whether he plans to sell the club or other questions related to the intentions of the maximum shareholder.
