Hector Cuper expressed his satisfaction after Mallorca's draw with Sevilla.Mallorca boss Hector Cuper expressed his satisfaction after seeing his side take a point from his first game in charge.
The Islanders came from behind to claim a draw from their trip to high-flying Sevilla courtesy of a Julio Baptista own-goal.
It was the first time this season that Sevilla have dropped points at home, and Cuper feels it gives him plenty to build on.
"It's good because it will help us a lot, above all on the psychological side which is coming little by little," Cuper declared.
"Today we put in a lot of effort in the first half and paid for it in the second.
"We came to do a good job and take a point in a delicate situation and, if you look at the whole game, the result was fair."
Meanwhile, it has been confirmed that goalkeeper Miguel Moya will be sidelined for between two to three weeks with a thigh injury.
The 20-year-old, who has established himself as number one at Son Moix this term, tore a muscle in training last week and missed the draw at Sevilla.
Sander Westerveld, on loan from Real Sociedad, stepped in to replace Moya on Sunday and will be hoping to convince Cuper to stick with him.
