De Sanctis targets three points

Morgan De Sanctis says Roma are keen to get back to winning ways after draws against Torino and Sassuolo.

The Giallorossi had won their opening 10 League games of the campaign, but they are now just a point clear of Juventus.

“We’re certainly not satisfied with the last few results,” the goalkeeper told Sky Sport Italia with Serie A set to resume after the international break.

“But this period has been of use to re-charge the batteries and put a few fitness issues right. Let’s hope that we’ll have a few players back for as soon as Monday’s game against Cagliari.

“Even if that is not the case though, we’ll be looking for maximum points because it will be important to give more substance to our leadership.”

Gervinho and Marco Borriello should be available, while Francesco Totti and Mattia Destro are on the comeback trail.

“We’re waiting for Totti, but he shouldn’t rush things,” the summer signing from Napoli noted. “He just has to focus on recovering fully.

“Mattia is an important player. He’s had his issues after his meniscus surgery, but he has great enthusiasm, he’s training with the squad again and we’re hopeful that he can soon make a contribution for us.”
