Hapoel Beer Sheva is preparing for the match tomorrow (Monday, 20:00) against Bnei Rayna at home.
The group from the capital of the Negev, which saw Maccabi Tel Aviv beat Nes Ziona yesterday and pass them in the table, knows that it cannot afford to lose points against the northerners again.
"We come with exactly the same attitude, of a strong and stubborn team that understands that they are playing at home and for us Turner is an advantage, and we want to continue to keep him as such," said the team's coach, Eliniv Barda, at the press conference today.
"We have a game against a tough team and we only control what we can control - ourselves, to be the best we can. This is the only way for us."
The coach added: "Turner for me is an advantage, period. The push the players get here is tremendous and I'm sure we will translate it into good things. We also lost outside. We need to concentrate on what we have control over, the way and the approach we bring. We are a very stubborn and strong team and we need to improve some things that worked for us Less well in the last few games, certainly in the front part and I hope that will be reflected in the game."

Regarding the state of his squad for tomorrow, Breda said: "Miguel Vitor is out, as for the rest, we have training and we'll see how they are doing. As far as I'm concerned, we don't have a missing squad, we'll go up with the best 11 and they'll have to be the best they can be. I'm never complete and always want To know what I can do better. Maybe there are strikers who could have played more, but every player has to prove that he deserves to be in the team. People will have to justify the opportunities they will get and prove that they deserve to be a part."
On Patrick Kalimela's integration: "From the very beginning we said this is a long-term signing, we are taking our time and will not risk him. He is on a very good acclimatization curve."

On Shafi Suleimanov: "He was sidelined for four games and was a little out of rhythm, but he trained amazingly, supported his friends and now he is also recovering from a virus he contracted and I am sure that if he continues to train he will return to the ability he used to us."
Iyad Abu Abid was also present at the press conference and added: "We do defense and attack all as a team, and I hope we continue together on this path. There is no doubt that we are in the last line, but the only thing that is interesting is the game tomorrow. Come and do the job in Turner."
On exercising the option on him: "I feel at home, the audience, the team and the owner appreciate me. I try to give my all, my family is doing well in Beer Sheva and I hope it continues like this."

The stopper continued: "We were very disappointed after Maccabi Tel Aviv, but as professionals we moved on and we are only concerned with Rayna. What will happen next is not in our control. We are only focused on this."
