Second consecutive defeat for Prato overtaken at home at “P. Torrini ”of Sesto Fiorentino from the freshman Alcione Milano for 0-2. A setback that could have sanctioned the end of the relationship between coach Luigi Pagliuca and Prato. The former coach of Viareggio and Ponsacco is one step away from the exemption. At the end of the game, the statements made by the general manager Ivano Reggiani seem indicative: ”Exemption? We will decide in the next forty-eight hours, but the coach does not seem able to make the most of the technical resources made available by the company. We are disappointed ”. Words that weigh like a “boulder” on the future on Luigi Pagliuca’s bench in Prato. For the record in the Sesto Fiorentino stands there were two technicians awaiting accommodation: Massimo Morgia ex Mantova and Francesco Colonbini ex Aglianese. Just a case? We will find out in the next few hours. Returning to the game, Prato showed its limits more than anything else in the first half: the freshman Alcione Milano led the dances, touching the net in the 5 ‘with Morselli: under-measure shot deflected by Reggiani. The Prato shows evident difficulties in the development of the maneuver. The only white-blue jolt in the first half at 23 ‘with a thigh shot by Ferretti on the developments of a corner: ball over the crossbar. To report at 39 ‘Malltezi’s knee injury who has to leave the field (a long stop is feared): Soldani in his place. The territorial supremacy of the Alcione Milano materializes at 41 ‘thanks to the author network of Manuzzi.
In the second half, the Prato is more lively but does not sting. The cold shower for the Lanieri at 58 ‘: Morselli and Guida’s corner kick in collaboration with Diallo pack the most classic of own goals. It is 2-0 for Alcione Milano. The game becomes all uphill for Prato: Pagliuca tries to revolutionize the tactical deployment by drawing on the bench, but the result does not change. It ends 0-2 for Alcione Milano, for Prato comes the second consecutive defeat. The last note concerns the number of spectators present at the first home match in the championship of the Prato Commini management: there were about 200 present in the stands at the “P. Torrini ”, an answer well below expectations. In short, a bad day for the Prato. Here is the match report:
