Petkovic: 'Lazio reacted well'

Vladimir Petkovic is pleased that Lazio ended their two-game losing streak. “We’re still not 100 per cent.”

The Biancocelesti confidently beat Siena 2-1 at the Olimpico, only letting in a consolation goal in stoppages.

“I am happy that we won and the team reacted well. We’re still not 100 per cent, but did well enough to win this game without too much of a struggle,” said the Coach.

“We played some good football and created many chances, so it’s a shame we dropped the clean sheet right at the end.

“Gianluca Pegolo should’ve been sent off and I don’t want to cause controversy, but it would’ve made things easier for us.”

Ederson scored on his first start for the Aquile, as Hernanes failed a fitness test.

“Ederson is not at his best because after a long injury lay-off he cannot hold out for 90 minutes. He also has to settle into our tactics and the goal can only do him good.

“He is a versatile player and can certainly work alongside Hernanes, but it depends on the type of approach we want to take.”
