Udinese coach Marino insists relegation no factor

Udinese coach Pasquale Marino insists they're not in danger of being sucked into a relegation battle.

The Zebrette have struggled for consistency so far this season and currently lie seventh from bottom in Serie A.

"We are still not a team in danger of relegation. You define it as such, but it seems that all kinds of things are being fired at us," Marino said.

"We are six points away from defining this game a relegation battle. Here there is a tendency to always exceed in negativity.

"Siena beat Catania at the weekend and this will certainly have given them an injection of confidence for the future. But we will obviously try to get maximum points.

"Last year, during the negative period, we were making the same number of points as a team in the relegation zone. It's not true that we aren't used to fighting for survival."
