Colomba seeks Palermo scalp

Parma are back on track after beating Inter and Udinese, but Franco Colomba wants the Palermo scalp next.

The Ducali are still fighting against relegation, but took giant leaps towards safety with consecutive victories against top sides.

“The tough work comes now, as these are the games that count the most,” warned the Coach.

“The hardest match is always the next one up. We'll try to stay focused. You might think after two wins over Inter and Udinese we'd be flying high, but the table says we've still got to suffer.

“The team must have the same concentration as the last two games,” continued Colomba.

“We've got to continue along this path and try to whittle down our errors as much as we can. Now is the time to find consistency.”

Parma's next test is against Palermo, who have also caused upsets in the last few weeks by beating Roma and Napoli.

“They might've seemed like an unknown quantity at times, but Palermo have a mixture of quality youngsters and experienced veterans.

“We've only achieved two positive results, so we cannot possibly rest on our laurels. There's a lot more we have to do.”
