Bologna striker Alberto Gilardino has admitted that his side are in the middle of a rough patch, ahead of the match against Torino on Sunday.
The Rossoblu currently sit in 18th place in Serie A having gone five game without a win, but the 30-year-old believes his team can win at the weekend and move out of the relegation zone.
“We are going through a difficult period,” he told a Press conference. “It is essential though, that we work hard to try and move up the table and get three points.
“We have a strong group and the ambition to achieve better things.
“Torino play some good football and have a great Coach. It will not be an easy game for us.”
