Fiorentina have injury worries ahead of their clash with Palermo.Fiorentina boss Emiliano Mondonico predicts a difficult task ahead for his side as they take on Palermo on Wednesday.
Mondonico's Serie A new boys secured their first success of the season at the weekend but the popular boss believes Palermo will prove difficult opposition.
''I expect a hostile situation,'' conceded Mondonico.
''Palermo are obtaining positive results.
''It won't be easy to overcome but to become important, we will have to learn to manage these situations.''
Fiorentina will be hampered by a crowded treatment room, with Enzo Maresca, Cristian Maggio and Hidetoshi Nakata (pictured) all struggling with injury.
''It is difficult to deal with injuries in such a short space of time,'' continued Mondonico.
''Maggio and Maresca will need continued treatment.
''We will go to Palermo with about 18 to 19 players and the others will have time to recover.''
