Quique González, after picking up the Estrella Galicia Award for the best player of the month of April, told the media that "We have to give all we've got" at the Anxo Carro in Lugo on Sunday (8 pm, LaLiga 1|2|3 TV).

The Deportivo forward described the clash as, "more than a derby, it's a match in which the 3 points are key. We'll begin working on it straight away."

Given the qualifying situation, with the team currently out of the play-off spots for promotion, he wants, "Us to win and the rest can do whatever they want. It's true that we no longer depend on ourselves." "When you're worried about the rest and not about yourself, you end up screwing it up. Focus on ourselves. We know we're good, that doing things right gets us closer to winning. We know it's very difficult to beat us. And let's see what our rivals do," he added.

He insisted that, regardless of whether the game is at the ABANCA-RIAZOR or away, "the only thing you have to think about is winning, gaining 3 points. Having a winning mentality. That's all we have to think about."

About the rival, CD Lugo, he admitted that they reach the clash in need: "They're fighting for themselves, we're doing it for us. We know that if we do things like the other day, we'll be closer to a victory."

He described them as a team that "play football well, they've scored many goals lately. We hope to stick together, helping each other at all times. At the end of the day, a match is very long. Not conceding, we'll have chances".

The squad is also aware that many Deportivistas will be at the stadium in Lugo: "We know our fans. It's a short trip. We know they're going to be there. We want to give them a victory."

On an individual level, he is satisfied with his goals: "You always want to give your best performance in football. In order to score goals, you have to do lots of other things. If you're only focused on scoring, that's pressure, that's getting it wrong. When you work well all week, you get goals."
