Lazio failed to keep up the pace with second place Napoli following a frustrating draw with Chievo at the Stadio Olimpico and Aquile coach Edy Reja bemoaned the dropped points in view of his side’s positive performance.
“The boys played well today,” he declared to SkySport.
“Chievo did well to press the ball for the entire 90 minutes and this made it difficult to create numerous goalscoring chances.
“My side did everything they could to search for victory and unfortunately we conceded on a corner. We need to work harder to avoid this momentarily lapses in concentration.
“They only had one chance on goal and scored and when this is the case it is always hard to stomach the result.
“I thought we deserved victory this afternoon but this is football.
“We are improving in terms of intensity and level of performance and this is important at this stage of the season.”
