Ventura: Bari can still survive

Bari Coach Giampiero Ventura still believes his side can survive in Serie A this season despite losing a seventh game on the bounce in all competitions.

The Galletti currently lie bottom of the table, nine points adrift of safety.

"Unfortunately this season we have managed to repeat the extraordinary run of last year," Ventura said.

"The injuries have persecuted us and have not allowed us to express our potential.

"We are nine points from safety. It's a lot, but if we manage to put everything in place, there is still a chance that we can survive.

"Our problems are evident. We are still managing to play good games with a high level of motivation. I am sure that we'll get back to being more competitive again with the recovery of our injured players."
