Lecce midfield starlet Andrea Bertolacci insists his side won't give up their top flight status without a fight.
The Salentini have lost three on the bounce under Gigi De Canio and currently lie third from bottom in Serie A.
Interviewed by Il Corriere dello Sport, Bertolacci said: "We're doing no calculations. They're useless.
"We don't want to hide away. We'll do everything to get the points. We want Serie A.
"A little thing is all it takes to find yourself up or down. Now we are down there and we know that it's not easy but I assure you that this is a group of players worthy of Serie A."
