Rudi Garcia on the draw, being more consistent and the title race


Roma coach Rudi Garcia has urged his players to maintain their consistency ahead of what could be a crucial last part of the season.

The Giallorossi registered at Fiorentina their third draw since the start of the new year and the Frenchman insists that consistency is the key going forward.

"I think they were better in the first half but we were better in the second," Garcia told Roma TV after the 1-1 draw.

"When [Miralem] Pjanic came on we switched to a 4-3-1-2 formation and we already started to show signs of improvement at the end of the first half.

"But we have to be more consistent during the game, we will win games if we play the way we did in the second half."

The draw means Roma fall seven points behind leaders Juventus and Garcia says the objective is now to win as many games as possible.

"[Tomorrow] I will tell [the players] that we have to play our next games in the way we played the second half today," he said.

"We have to win as many games as possible, we drew way too many games in recent weeks.

"Today was slightly different because Firenze is always a tough pitch to play on and [a draw] is not a bad result.

"We have to work on the mental aspect of the game, hoping to be more consistent in upcoming matches. We have to get points in the league and continue in the Italian Cup.

"And then Gervinho and [Seydou] Keita will be back."
