At Real Mallorca both the players and the fans have had a good talking to. The players appeared to have responded well, beating Panathinaikos on Tuesday night, now the fans have their chance to redeem themselves and get behind their side on Sunday when Mallorca host Tenerife in the league. Mallorca are taking the Tenerife clash very seriously, languishing in the league just one point of the bottom spot, coach Kresic has told the side to play every game as if it were a final in the bid for maximum points. This season, Mallorca have only enjoyed one home win at fortress Son Moix, last season one of the toughest stadiums to win at. At least the sole home victory was Kresic's debut game with Mallorca crushing Real Vallecano 3-0. Mallorca's home league record this season boasts three defeats and a draw against Alaves. Kresic believes that the win over Panathinaikos was of immense psychological importance to the players and is confident that it marked a turning point in Mallorca's fortunes. “We're capable of climbing our way back up the league, I know it and so do the players,” he said. Leo Franco is expected to make his return from injury and Kresic is banking on mid-fielder and play-maker Vicente Engonga also making his return to the side after injury.
