Miha and Giampaolo accept point

Sinisa Mihajlovic asked Fiorentina to be more clinical in front of goal, while Marco Giampaolo accepted Adrian Mutu's red card.

Cesena and Fiorentina drew 0-0 in the Sunday lunch-time kick-off at the Stadio Dino Manuzzi.

“We knew it was going to be a difficult game, because Cesena are very organised,” said Viola boss Mihajlovic.

“We can't seem to finish off our chances. Alberto Gilardino's absence is sorely felt, but I am happy with Santiago Silva's performance. We've all got to take more responsibility to be more clinical in front of goal.”

Cesena were pushing their way into the match when ex-Fiorentina star Mutu was shown a straight red card for swinging out an arm at Mattia Cassani.

“Mutu has to relax, there is no pressure on him,” said Coach Giampaolo. “He made a mistake and that is all, but Cesena love him.

“Today we played very well and this performance was certainly not worthy of last place. We've played decent football throughout the season, but results are not going our way.

“We fought harder and created more chances than Fiorentina today, so all we lacked was the victory, even after going down to 10 men.”
