Di Francesco: 'Lecce must react'

Eusebio Di Francesco demands “a reaction” from Lecce after a series of dire results, but is struck by an injury crisis against Genoa.

The Salentini have only three points from their first five games and lost all their home encounters.

David Di Michele, Julio Sergio, Stefano Ferrario and Souleymane Diamoutene have joined the absentee list for Sunday's trip to Marassi.

“At the moment I have to adapt, but I have great faith in those who will step on to the pitch,” said the Coach.

“I have to try to shake things up, as I want a reaction. Football is indelibly linked with incidents, but at the same time you cannot do without the right attitude and performance.

“I haven't had to clear the air with the players, I simply repeated the ideas from pre-season. I want something more from everyone. I want a reaction.”

Lecce squad: Gabrieli, Esposito, Giandonato, Cuadrado, Obodo, Corvia, Olivera, Mesbah, Strasser, Ofere, Giacomazzi, Grossmuller, Piatti, Muriel, Brivio, Oddo, Tomovic, Pasquato, Carrozzieri, Benassi, Bertolacci
