Botafogo must build on big win, says head coach Vagner ManciniEmerson Sheikh's move to the club has stabilised the forward line
Botafogo head coach Vagner Mancini has stressed the importance of continuing the good form shown by his side following their 6-0 thumping of Criciuma at the weekend.
The Rio de Janeiro club are now sitting in mid table and Mancini sees the win as an opportunity to move even further up the league, with another winnable game away at Goias to come this Wednesday evening.
Mancini told reporters ahead of that fixture: "Winning tomorrow is crucial in order to prove our evolution. Beating Goias will lift us up the table and fight for the top positions."
After a poor start to 2014, in which Botafogo lost influential midfielder Clarence Seedorf and were dumped out of the Copa Libertadores at the group phase, they lie 13th in the Serie A table ahead of the trip to Goias.
