Serse Cosmi does not believe Napoli are in crisis and warned Lecce tomorrow will be “a very tough game.”
The Partenopei ended their five-match winless streak by beating Novara at the weekend, while Lecce snatched a draw at Lazio.
“Even if Napoli are not at the top of their form, they still have what it takes to cause us problems,” said Cosmi.
“They seem to be on their way back up now and are still in the fight for third place. It is going to be a very tough game tomorrow against a strong opponent.
“We will not rotate the squad, as there are two matches after this in which we’ll be forced to. At this stage of the season it’s silly to change tactics and I do not see my players losing their way.
“Without doubt going six games unbeaten is a wonderful run and I had hoped to get these results with such quality football. There is satisfaction, but at the end of the day the table still says we’re third from bottom.”
Lecce have closed the gap to just one point from safety.
Lecce squad: Di Matteo, Esposito, Giandonato, Cuadrado, Obodo, Corvia, Bojinov, Seferovic, Di Michele, Giacomazzi, Muriel, Petrachi, Blasi, Brivio, Oddo, Tomovic, Carrozzieri, Benassi, Delvecchio, Bertolacci
