Coach Sinisa Mihajlovic rued a late Juventus equaliser as Fiorentina came away with just a point after leading for 80 minutes in Turin.

As Simone Pepe’s late free kick denied Fiorentina a precious victory against bitter rivals Juventus, Viola coach Sinisa Mihajlovic praised his side for their showing despite the inability to secure all three points.

“We didn’t close the game out intelligently,” he declared to SkySport.

“Overall I think a draw was a fair result given the course of the game.

“In the last few matches we haven’t been rewarded as much as we deserve given the level of performances.

“This evening the boys put in another positive performance and we could have come away with all three points.

“We have a number of injury problems right now and this is pulling us back a little. I have always been optimistic, however, and given the performances of late there is every reason to be confident going forward.”
